Parents Bulletins & Letters - FINAL Print E-mail

“Parenting teenagers is a bit like whitewater rafting-but I want you to have both sides of the picture. Scary, hectic, and uncomfortable-yes; but also thrilling, stimulating, challenging and ultimately very rewarding”. Ian Grant.

“Of all the natural events that occur in the family life cycle, the emergence of adolescence is the one most likely to test parental flexibility and tolerance.”. Dr. Michael Carr-Gregg

Final Letter Home from Gnurad-Gundidj Campus - Term 3 - 18 September 2019

Letter Snapshot...

We describe the Gnurad Gundidj Campus experience as having three phases: Preparation, separation and reintegration. The final, reintegration phase for the community of Term 3, 2019 is just beginning. Make no mistake, the reintegration phase is the longest phase (it can go on for all our lives), and can be the most challenging. It may require some pre-planning on all your behalves, and I hope I can provide some ideas or thoughts to assist this phase. Your school holiday may be a real challenge and they may be the most fantastic you have ever had together.

School For Student Leadership

School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) 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".

Our school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai, Bidawel and Gundijmara people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campuses are built. We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their Elders past and present, and especially whose children attend our school.
