A wilderness adventure experience for Victorian public school students has been so successful it looks set to be expanded, giving more teenagers the chance to learn outdoor and leadership skills.

The Victorian Government is looking at establishing two new School for Student Leadership campuses in the Yarra Valley and the Grampians

They would be in addition to the three existing campuses: at Marlo in far east Gippsland, Mount Noorat in the western districts and Dinner Plain in the Victorian Alps.

There are no regular classes at the schools. Instead, the students participate in outdoor activities, classes on problem solving and leadership activities.

"If building other campuses was driven by data alone, then we would have ten more campuses," Marlo campus principal Robyn Francis said.

The outcomes for our students are excellent

Approximately 540 year nine students are selected from public schools around the state every year to attend one of the campuses for approximately ten weeks. However that only works out to roughly 2 per cent of Victorian public school year nine students.

But give them an opportunity to do something for someone else and watch them shine. They're fantastic.
