New year, new Professional Excellence team

It's a new school year and a new year of ACHPER Victoria professional learning opportunities to help you teach at the top of your game in 2024!

In addition to some expansion within our consulting services team throughout 2023, our professional learning (PL) approach will also undergo some updates in 2024. To reflect the developing changes within the industry, the PL team has evolved into the 'Professional Excellence' team with the appointment of Andy Hair and Sean de Morton.

We recently said goodbye to Jo Ritson and Renae Fraser, who took on new roles in Health and Physical Education (HPE), leaving an impressive legacy of developing resources and delivering workshops across the primary and secondary/VCE spaces. We thank them both for their contributions, passion, and the extensive knowledge brought to ACHPER Victoria over their time with us, and look forward to them remaining part of the ACHPER family.

With change comes new opportunities. We are thrilled to introduce you to the new (or not so new for some) faces of our PL (Professional Excellence) team.

Andy Hair, Resource Coordinator

With a dynamic and energetic presence, Andy has dedicated 30 years to educating globally, fostering personal growth through a love for movement.
