As champions of our VCE network, Bonnie & Tristan have worked continually on keeping this network running at a high standard. Given that they have both retired from running this network, we would invite other VCE teachers to take a more central role. Some of our initial thinking is to instigate roving VCE network meetings, with various VCE Philosophy teachers putting their hand up to host at their school once or more throughout the year.
If you are interested in stepping into a more prominent role within our VCE Philosophy network, please get in touch with our Education Officer here.
VCE Network Meetings will be organised through our Google Group. Please request to join here.
