2019 International Women's Day - Dr Mayumi Purvis

08/03/2019

On Friday 8 March approximately 200 members of our community gathered in celebration of International Women’s Day.

Guest speaker, past pupil, Dr Mayumi Purvis, inspired all gathered to continue to strive for gender balance and ‘to nurture and demonstrate our natural qualities and use them to take our place in this world with impact’.

Ella Bater and Gladys Mpakame of Year 9 reflected on the legacy of the Brigidine Sisters who are at the heart of our school community and continue to inspire us to live with Strength and Kindliness.

A beautiful performance by Year 12 students, Jasmine Winter and Alessia Muscariello, of ‘When you Believe’ from Prince of Egypt was a fitting end to the celebration.
