Gnurad-Gundidj Campus Term 2 2020 Program update as of March 26 2020 Print E-mail

Dear Students, Parents, Guardians, Carers, Families and Colleagues,

This applies to schools and families enrolled to attend The Alpine School and Gnurad-Gundidj campuses in Term 2, 2020.

We are receiving enquiries about the impact of Covid-19 on the potential operation of our programs in Term 2. Of course, the health and wellbeing of students and staff is our number one concern.

The Department of Education is taking advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer regarding the operation of schools during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

While no changes have been announced for Victorian government schools to the Term 2 program apart from an additional non-student day on 15th April, strong advice has been provided for schools to prepare for a possible transition to home and remote learning.

We will provide advice on any changes to the program, potential delays to opening, or postponements as soon as we have a definite decision.

As with all Government Schools we are preparing for the prospect of remote learning, and will endeavour to continue to build the leadership potential of young people in Victoria regardless of our mode of operation.

Yours sincerely,
Sean Fitzpatrick
Campus Principal, Gnurad-Gundidj Campus
Mark Reeves
Principal
School for Student Leadership

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.
