In recent years Victorian Teachers' Games saw a corporate team from North West Victoria Region take out the bronze medal in the Dragon Boat racing event and have a lot of fun in the process.
"It was a great team building exercise, but also just a lot of fun," said Integrity Liaison Officer Peta Fualau. "We had a lot of laughs on the day, got to meet some great people from other schools and other corporate areas."
Victorian Teachers' Games are facilitated by a small team from the Department's School Sport Unit, School Sport Victoria. The registration cost is $35. You then pay per sport or event you wish to be a part of, varying between $5-$70.
Registrations close Friday 23 August 2019.
