Parents Bulletins & Letters - No.1 // Arrival Day!

Parent Bulletin - No 1First letter from Gnurad-Gundidj Campus - Sunday 12 October 2014

Arrival day at the Gnurad-Gundidj Campus (Glenormiston)

Welcome to the community of the Gnurad Gundidj Campus for our term four nine week program.

During the course of the next nine weeks we shall be emailing you several times. These letters will also be posted on our website and a student blog will be enabled for you to see and read about current and daily events. The content of the communications is to assist you with your side of the Gnurad Gundidj Campus Experience. The letters will not necessarily deal with individuals and their achievements, but more about the living and learning process all students will be undertaking. We want to provide you with some early reminders and information for your arrival day and to perhaps help you on your return and continued journey.

The Alpine School Campus

School For Student Leadership

School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development initiative offering a unique residential education experience for year nine students. The curriculum focuses on personal development and team learning projects sourced from students' home regions. There are three campuses in iconic locations across Victoria. The Alpine School Campus is located at Dinner Plain in the Victorian Alps. Snowy River Campus is near the mouth of the Snowy River at Marlo in east Gippsland. The third site is adjacent to Mount Noorat near Camperdown in Victoria’s Western District, and is called Gnurad-Gundidj. After consultation with the local aboriginal community, this name represents both the indigenous name of the local area and an interpretation of the statement "belonging to this place". It opened for students in term 1 2009.
