No Woman Left Behind

Senior Stars from our Casuarina and Palmerston programs had the opportunity to attend the No Woman Left Behind Conference in Darwin last week.

Our young women felt privileged to be part of the event and were especially thrilled to be formally welcomed in the conference introduction!

They had a chance to listen to a range of wonderful guest speakers – and were also lucky enough to hear Cathy Freeman’s inspirational story and meet her after her speech.

Cathy’s focus on resilience, determination and the importance of education was particularly resonant for our students.

After the formal conference proceedings, our young women took an active part in the workshop on Self Determination and Empowerment, where they stood up and spoke confidently in front of the group.

A big thank you to the conference organisers for providing our young women with this fantastic leadership development experience.
