Cire Services Inc.’s milestone achievements and progress over the past 12 months and its goals for the coming year were proudly showcased at the 2018 AGM at Chirnside Park Community Hub on Wednesday 27th March.
Recently appointed Board Chairperson, Julian Carle, welcomed more than 100 people to the AGM including Cire staff and special guest, Director of Education – Berry Street, Tom Brunzell who spoke about the importance of trauma-informed learning in schools.
In addition to Tom’s presentation, another highlight was retiring Board member Ian Cuming’s reflections on the early history of Cire Services and how it has become such a significant not-for-profit organisation serving the Yarra Ranges region.
Ian’s fascinating account was gleaned from his 22 years as one of the longest-serving members of the Board. We thank him sincerely for his dedication and commitment to Cire over so many years and wish him well in his future endeavours.
Cire CEO, Gus Seremetis, commended Cire staff for their ongoing work and support and noted what a significant achievement it had been for Cire to take over the management of Chirnside Park Community Hub, a partnership with Yarra Ranges Council.
Executive Manager, Education and Training, Anna-Louse Allen spoke about Crash Through and shared the journeys of four students who are now on a steady career pathway.
Board Treasurer, Andrew Hunter, reported that 2018 was a strong year, placing Cire in an excellent position to continue serving the community through flexible learning opportunities for people of all ages.
