This year within Senior School, we will be focusing on the stories of strong women and girls. Students are encouraged to explore texts that feature strong female characters, facing the challenges and vicissitudes of life. Stories of girls who challenge expectation and create their own reality.

​On Thursday 15 June, 20 girls from Year 7 set off into the city to attend the Girls Write Up festival in Melbourne. Once there, the girls first listened to guest speaker Winnie Dunn, who spoke about what it was like to be a young female immigrant growing up in Sydney. After listening to Winnie Dunn and taking away some valuable information, everyone split up into groups for their chosen workshops. The workshops were run by incredible women, teaching either Slam Poetry, Writing from Art or Scriptwriting.
