The new DET guidelines make it very clear that face-face gathering is to be avoided where possible. As such, this event will now move online. Previously scheduled for a 9:30am start we will begin at 9:45am for a condensed but nonetheless dynamic gathering with a variety of speakers across pressing issues of the moment. Crucially, as last year, this pivot comes with opportunities. Our colleagues in regional Victoria and Tasmania are warmly invited to join what is predominantly a metro-Melbourne gathering.
With presentations from The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission, the VRQA and a time of questions with our own Director of Public Policy, Mark Spencer and Vanessa Cheng of AACS, this is not to be missed ...and if that's not enough we have the Director of the Centre for Children's and Youth Ministry at Ridley College, Graham Stanton, joining us to lead devotions.
For CSEN participating schools, there will be an online meeting from 2:00 to 3:00pm, with the opportunity to hear updates and news from the CSEN Board Chair.
