Bec SwaynGeneralist Teacher

When I came across the SSL, the school’s philosophy really appealed to me and I became a teacher with the hope of one day joining the school. I have a background in science and anthropology and have always enjoyed working with young people.

Living and teaching in Tassie for a couple of years highlighted the impact that the connections students build at school have on their whole lives, which ultimately led me back to the SSL. When I’m not at school, I enjoy travelling (especially to the snow), hiking and hanging out with family.

School For Student Leadership

School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education 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 four 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". The fourth and most recently opened campus is Don Valley Campus, situated on land that was once known as Haining Farm in the Yarra Ranges.

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.
