SRS Plus: Community of Practice Forum 3

SRS Plus: Community of Practice Forum 3

This 45 minute forum will give you dedicated time to deepen your understanding of child safe standards and learn practical ways to implement these in your schools.

Held once per term, the forum will provide opportunity for attendees to learn and discuss ways to effectively implement the child safe standards. You can connect with other schools to share learnings or implementation successes with a focus on demonstrating the implementation of child safe standards.


The course presenter will be either Kate Halloran or Clare Morrissey from Halloran Morrissey.
