VYLC - A Recap of Our Week 3 - From China
It is hard to believe that only last Sunday our initial team of Alpine staff changed over and we had the second team arrive in the morning. Since then, we have continued to be busy and that morning the students finished painting their designs onto the doors at the local primary school. The Principal and all local families of students were extremely happy with the end result. The brightly coloured doors helped provide a facelift to the school.

In the afternoon students got to experience a traditional Chinese Lion Dance, which was loud and entertaining. Some students even got to have a turn at playing the drums and getting inside the Lion and having a go at bringing it to life. It was a great way to send off the departing staff members. That evening a talent show was held and some of the finest talent we have seen amongst Alpine School students was put on show. Guitars, keyboard, duet and solo singing, even a magic card trick was shared. Another positive night.

School for Student Leadership - Victorian Young Leaders to China initiative Alpine-China Program
The Victorian Young Leaders to China Program
The Alpine School Campus of the School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) school specialising in leadership and personal development education for students in Year 9. 

This term we are a pilot program for the Victorian Young Leaders to China initiative. This means we are part of a state-wide program for young Victorians to participate in a new and dynamic cultural exchange.

The program for term 4, 2014 will consist of a week at The Alpine School at Dinner Plain to begin the program, then 4 weeks in China at Utahloy International School, Zheng Chen Campus, and then a final week back at The Alpine School, Dinner Plain Campus. The website is http://www.utahloy.com/zc

The Victorian Young Leaders to China Program gives students, teachers and school leaders the opportunity to be part of a life-changing international education experience.  As part of Victoria as a Learning Community and the vision to internationalise our education system, 1500 Victorian Year 9 students will travel to China over five years from 2014. 

At the core, the Victorian Young Leaders to China Program is about students’ developing capabilities for modern ways of living, thinking and working. This includes global knowledge, intercultural understanding and developing thinking and relationship skills for engaging in a global context such as collaboration, communication and linguistic ability. Students will participate in a rich learning program that will help them develop and demonstrate leadership skills, and to empower them to make an active contribution to their schools and communities as young leaders. 

The program complements the Victorian Government’s Vision for Languages Education by supporting students to deepen their knowledge and understanding of another culture and language. It is designed to increase the number of students in all schools who include a language in addition to English in their senior secondary studies.

It is expected that all the rules and policies that apply the Alpine School, School for Student Leadership, will also apply when the students are in China.
