We would like to thank our school partners for your commitment and patience in working with DARE in what was a challenging year given the significant changes to the criteria and requirements. As a direct result of your hard work in promoting DARE and supporting your students through the DARE application process, many more applicants applied, were deemed eligible and are now fulfilling their dreams and potential.

We would also like to thank all the Guidance Counsellors and Learning Support Teachers who participated in the evaluation of the new Educational Impact Statement. Your feedback was very valuable. We have endeavoured to incorporate as much of it as possible in the EIS for 2017. We look forward to continuing to work with you on this important equity of access initiative in 2017.
