Great to catch up with an original 1974 Hastings High School student and former Bittern Primary student at the recent Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards in Sydney. Suzanne Cridge enrolled in Year 8 and was sent home for the first three weeks whilst some portable classes were moved onto the site of the school which was then a few farm paddocks. Sue has had an extensive career in education and was a pioneer of Women In Educational Leadership in Victoria. She is currently Director of Education for Social Ventures Australia. We hope to partner with Sue on some projects in the future.
