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. 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.
The Student Alliance has a wonderful line up of speakers and events planned for 2019. Schools interested in participating should contact [email protected]
Our theme for 2019 is MORE POWERFUL TOGETHER, in line with the UN Women Australia theme for this year.
2019 NSW meeting dates:
12 March 2019 – Ravenswood School for Girls
14 May 2019 – St Vincent’s College, 4.30pm to 6.00pm
6 August 2019 – Brigidine College St Ives, 4.30pm to 6.00pm
22 October 2019 – Clemenger BBDO, Pier 9, 23 Hickson Road Walsh Bay, 4.30pm to 6.00pm
How does the 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.
2019 VIC meeting dates: to be confirmed
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.
