From the President's Desk
Welcome back to Term 2! I hope everyone had a chance to spend some quality time with family and friends over the Easter and term breaks and are ready to embrace all that Term 2 has to offer. Federal Education Minister, Jason Clare M.P., announced in March the formation of an expert panel that will advise Education Ministers on the key targets and specific reforms that should be tied to funding in the next National School Reform Agreement. On May 1st, the Minister announced the members of the National School Reform Agreement Ministerial Reference Group, who will work with, and advise, the expert panel. We are very pleased that the voice of parents has been included on this group, and I am excited to see that ACSSO has a prominent place at the table through the appointment of our CEO, Dianne Giblin, to the Reference Group.
