Vic In­ter­schools event man­ager David Speirs said that he is very ex­cited about the up­com­ing sea­son.

“The team that im­pacts on the qual­ity of these events have been work­ing hard on the plan­ning and we are con­tin­u­ally look­ing to im­prove all ar­eas of the event ex­pe­ri­ence from new mo­bile com­pat­i­ble web­site design, im­proved sched­ul­ing and start time in­for­ma­tion,” Mr Speirs said.

“Our goal is to stage world class events that are not only ac­ces­si­ble but de­liver an ex­tra­or­di­nary com­pe­ti­tion ex­pe­ri­ence for all lev­els of par­tic­i­pants, as well as their fam­i­lies and schools.”
