Recognition of Service ceremony

More than 450 people gathered beneath the stained glass ceiling of the Great Hall at the National Gallery of Victoria on Sunday 22 July this year to recognise some of the Department’s longest serving employees.

Over 200 teachers, principals, school support officers and corporate staff were recognised at the NGV for 40, 45, 50 and 55 years of service to education in Victoria.

The Recognition of Service ceremony is an annual event that recognises and celebrates dedication, loyalty and longevity of service to the Department of Education.
