Third Letter from the Gnurad-Gundidj Campus and Community
Third Letter Home - March 2, 2017
Hello again from the community of the Gnurad Gundidj Campus! What a busy term we have had already. By the time you read this, the first expedition groups have headed-out and returned. They have ridden around our local Lakes and Craters environment, camping out at Glenfyne and put into practice all the skills learned in their expedition preparation sessions. The students were well prepared and so full of excitement, apprehension, “coolness” and worry, all mixed into one! I know, however, that what they will learn through their undertaking will put them in great stead. One of the concepts we use in designing our type of education experience is to move from the known to the unknown. In moving to, and living at, the Gnurad Gundidj Campus, students initially are in a much unknown environment (socially, physically, emotionally, geographically and so on), which they soon become comfortable and familiar with. I am sure this is conveyed in correspondence, and will be obvious at the visiting weekend.
The visiting weekend is this weekend and we look forward to seeing you here. Can I stress that it is a family occasion, for parents’ benefit, and should be limited to immediate family members.
Your sons and daughters can be collected between 9.00am & 10.00am Saturday 20th August and returned at 4pm on Sunday 21st August. The Campus will be vacant outside of these hours.
Mark Reeves (Principal, School for Student Leadership) and Michael Castersen (Campus Principal - Gnurad-Gundidj Campus)
