‘Be Bold For Change’ was the theme for International Women’s Day 2017
A breakfast celebration for International Women’s Day was held in the library of the Senior Campus on Wednesday, March 8.
With over 55 students, parents and staff attending, it was a most successful and enjoyable occasion. In acknowledgement of the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day, our library was transformed by the creative genius of Kay Wilson. The spectacular display, featured throughout that week, highlighted significant achievements of past student Janey Kennedy, recent achievement by women in sport, as well as participation by women in politics, industry, design and science.
Our special guest, Lynley Marshall, the recently appointed CEO of Museum’s Victoria, inspired and moved all, with the story of her rise to success from a farming community in remote New Zealand, to her successful career at the senior executive management level in the areas of broadcasting and the arts. Lynley’s account of challenges she overcame resonated with many in the audience. Her passion for life-long learning and her justification for the importance of education in achieving one’s goals conveyed a wonderful message, especially to our students.
