We are pleased once again to invite you and your students to our highly anticipated annual International Women’s Day breakfast at Parliament House. This highly anticipated annual event is designed to bring students from Years 10-12 and their teachers together to celebrate the importance of International Women’s Day.
Our speaker at this event is Yvette Arnott, Literature teacher and Assistant Principal at The Mac.Robertson Girls’ High School. Yvette will focus on the importance of unpicking the educational environment, which is often inherently patriarchal and the importance of continuing to teach and inspire feminism in girls’ schools.
Doors to Queen’s Hall open at 7.30 am to allow sufficient time to complete the security process. Security screening is similar to an airport process. Accompanying staff should collect any sharp objects such as scissors from students, place in a clearly labelled bag and hand to security. This will assist in making the process faster on arrival and also on departure when collecting items. School blazers should be removed while waiting in the line as these will need to go through the scanner. There is no provision for storing school bags at the venue, however, they can be placed under your table.
The breakfast begins at 8.30am and guests should be in the room by 8.00am.
