Gnurad-Gundidj Lessons
David Tatnall - Photography Print E-mail

Many of our current and past students have and continue to be influenced and engaged by the teaching and photos of David Tatnall. David spends six days and three evening classes across the three School for Student Leadership campuses teaching our students about "photography".

His main idea is the value of visual communication.  The students learn how to use ‘old school’ SLR cameras, take photos and then create a photographic exhibition of their works. On several occasions, student photos have won awards at the Noorat Show (part of the Gnurad Gundidj program in term 4 each year). David is really a valued and integral part of our program.

Film Bios: ‘M’ rated Movies Print E-mail

Starting in 2015, we will be showing some M-rated films to students. For this we require a new M-Rated Film consent form to be filled out by all parents and for them to read a short bio of each film which has been included below.

All chosen movies have been reviewed by teaching staff and deemed appropriate for use in our program. We will provide adult supervision while screening movies and review movies with students if/as necessary. By law, adult supervision is recommended while screening M-rated movies for any person less than 15 years of age.

Gnurad Lessons - An Overview Print E-mail

This section highlights a number of the unique lessons students get to experience at the Gnurad Gundidj Campus. In designing the local curriculum we have aimed to select classes which are relevant, enjoyable, engaging and integrated with learning from the core School for Student Leadership educational program.

Our unique program at Gnurad focuses on engaging the students in activities which allow them to explore and learn about the local environment and cultures; both indigenous and non-indigenous. Gaining a sense of belonging in local places through knowledge and experience is a key learning outcome.

Providing safe and enjoyable outdoor experiences which facilitate the practical application of knowledge gained from Thinking and Learning, Peer Skills, Leadership and Teamwork classes is another primary objective of the localised program.
