Nissa PenderOvernight Supervisor

I grew up near a little town called Bowraville in NSW, in the most amazing home in the bush. I moved to Victoria when I finished year 12. I have had many roles in my life, from project fire fighter with Department of water land and planning to a saw doctor in a timber mill.

Since starting at Gnurad-Gundidj I feel like I have found my calling. I love getting to know and building meaningful connections with so many young adults.

Out of work I like to read, paddle board, sew, off road Skateboard and spend time with my family and friends and most of all my 2 fur babies Harvey and Korra.

School for Student Leadership - Student Equity Fund The Student Equity Fund enables people who share our vision of transformative education to contribute to this outstanding program and help ensure it is affordable and accessible for all students in the public education system.


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.
