Western Heights College - Media Release Print E-mail

Term 2, 2016 - Western Heights College Media Release

Western Heights recently completed EXPO 2. A 3 day hike at Mount Eccles venturing over rocky paths and into tight spaced caves on the way. It was a long journey with lots of memorable experiences on the way. We became closer to our group.

Our most interesting class of the week was presentation skills, we got to make a one minute presentation on a topic of our choice. Amiee’s was about her favorite pizza shop and Michael’s was about Star Wars. 

We are looking forward to Enviro-Farming which is helping out on the farms by herding the cows and milking cows

Our favorite quote that has been relevant to our group is, 'The grass is greener where you water it', because we have learnt that others can’t help you make things better, only you can help yourself.

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.
