Emerging leaders becoming the teachers for our local Primary schools. [Local Learning Projects (LLP)]

Exploring Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve, as part of the Environments sequence of lessons, where students learn about the history of Aboriginal people in the area, as well as learning to identify native plants, food and wildlife.

At the SSL Gnurad-Gundidj Campus, we utilise the local environment to allow our emerging leaders to apply their learning from the classroom.

Within the local community, both indoors and outdoors, they’re able to increase the connectedness to the environment and their respective communities, develop their own self-worth and self-belief and create stronger relationships with their communities of peers, families, and staff.
