A message from the Director

I would like to welcome new members to the VRQA Board: Ms Pam White PSM, our new Chair; Mr Jim Williamson; and Dr Sara Glover. Together they bring strong governance, education and training expertise to the Board.

Thank you to all schools that completed and submitted the VRQA Child Safe Standards Readiness Tool. Your participation in this important initiative has not only helped your school to prepare to meet the child safe standards, but has shaped the information and guidance the VRQA will provide to all Victorian schools.

I also wish to thank those who took part in the 2015 Client and Stakeholder Research. The time and contribution you have given to our annual research is greatly appreciated and influences the direction of the VRQA’s services and stakeholder engagement.

Lynn Glover
