Forty years ago the Country Education Partnership was established to support rural and remote communities across rural Victoria, and since that time has continued to provide a strong voice on rural and remote education as well as support rural and remote communities in having access to a high quality education.
It has also supported a number of rural and remote communities in other states of Australia in recent times.
Initiated as a cross sectoral initiative under the Country Areas Program by the Commonwealth Government in 1977, this year sees it celebrate its 40th year and to ensure that we recognise the multitude of people who have been involved in its work over this time, a celebration evening will be held on:
Friday, 25th August
Treacey Centre, The Avenue, Parkville
Beginning at 5.30pm
The evening celebrations will include a buffet meal and lots of stories as people mingle to commemorate four decades of working within, and in partnership with, rural education communities.
There will be people who were involved in the establishment of the organisation attending and sharing the original vision of CEP; those who have had involvement and driven fantastic initiatives for rural and remote communities; and those that have worked with CEP to support it’s vision and work.
Additionally, we will celebrate current learning initiatives from our rural and remote communities and consider the exciting role that CEP can play into the future – including from some of our rural and remote young people.
