The VRQA Guidelines for Registered Schools on Bushfire Preparedness have recently been updated and include changed emergency management planning requirements for all schools, as well as additional requirements for schools listed on the Bushfire At-Risk Register.

The Guide to Minimum Standards and Other Requirements for School Registration has been updated to include these and other changed requirements for schools, including anaphylaxis management requirements that commenced in April 2014 via Ministerial Order 706.

More information is available in this edition of e-news.

I am also pleased to announce the publication of the VRQA Annual Report 2013–14. The report which sets out details of our operations and achievements over the past financial year was tabled in Parliament on 16 September 2014. It is now available on the VRQA website.

The VRQA values feedback about the information and resources it provides, as well as suggestions for future e-news articles. Feedback may be directed to vrqa@edumail.vic.gov.au.
