Student Alliance Networking Group
In 2014, under the umbrella of the Alliance of Girls’ Schools Australasia, a Student Alliance was formed with the vision of connecting girls from Alliance member schools across Sydney, and that vision has now expanded to students in Melbourne. The group comprises girls from Years 9-11 and is an empowering forum for young women wishing to make a difference in their schools, communities and the world.
Being part of the Student Alliance Networking Group has been an inspiring, educational and motivating experience. We gained an awareness and passion for the issues that affect us as women and we have gained new friends with whom we can have conversations, share ideas and explore solutions. This experience has exceeded our expectations and we look forward to next year and future years – Mount St Benedict College.
Two groups have been formed, one in NSW and the other in VIC. The Student Alliance Networking Groups are currently not holding meetings due to COVID-19 restrictions. We hope to resume activities in 2021.
How does the NSW Student Alliance Networking Group work?
Students choose topics, related the theme for that year and then collaboratively work with girls from other schools on a specific project, which they then present back in a competitive showcase at the end of the year.
How does the VIC Student Alliance Networking Group work?
The Victorian Student Alliance Network operates slightly differently, and instead of group projects, the girls are mentored by Jenni Screen, former Australian and Olympic basketballer, and spend time each meeting investigating, developing and challenging their leadership skills.
