Our Event Manual provides schools with all the key details and links to the information you need for this year’s Energy Breakthrough event in Maryborough.

The successful running of the event depends on our Team Manager’s reading all of the relevant information and passing the relevant details on to all of your team members, other Team Managers at your school, parents and support staff.

Please assist us by forwarding this Event Manual on to your school community.

IMPORTANT NOTE #2: Working With Children Check (WWCC) Requirements

A reminder that all Team Managers and all adults in supervising roles with students during the event are required to have a current Working With Children Check (WWCC) or current Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) registration. We do not need to record evidence of all adults WWCC status, however, the onus is on you as a Team Manager to ensure your team and any support crew members are compliant.
