I was nominated by the Region in my capacity as the Kingston Network Chair, to represent South Eastern Region Victoria at a special working lunch on Friday 23rd June at Government House with Her Excellency the Honourable, Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria, Mr Anthony Howard QC, International Guest Dr Mary Jean Gallagher – former Assistant Deputy Minister and Chief Student Achievement Officer at the Ministry of Education of Ontario, Canada, Ms Gill Callister, Secretary Department of Education and Training (DET), Mr Bruce Armstrong, Deputy Secretary Regional Services group DET, Ms Katy Haire,  Deputy Secretary, Early Childhood and School Education DET, Ms Amy Auster, Deputy Secretary, Economics Department of Treasury and Finance, Mr David Atkinson, Director of the Department of Premier and Cabinet Education branch, and seven other Network Chairs  from across the state. During the lunch we were asked to share our school improvement focus and also the work of our respective networks in driving the Education State agenda. I was very proud to not only speak about Mordialloc College, but also the fantastic collaborative work of the Kingston Network of Schools and other networks in SEVR.
