Throughout the world on Sunday 8 March, communities will gather together to celebrate and commemorate the diverse and invaluable contribution of women in society. As the Sunday 8 March does not fall on a school day this year, Snowy Mountains Grammar School will be hosting our 2nd annual International Women’s Day breakfast on the morning of Monday 9 March.

The theme for our local event is:

“Inspiring Young Women in the Snowy Monaro Region”

The aim of our International Women’s Day breakfast is to foster connections between local community members and the young women in our region, expose our young ladies to the myriad of career opportunities available, and inspire them to pursue a life of purpose and passion.

Female students in Years 7-12, and with staff members and mothers from SMGS are invited to attend. Inspiring and successful female role models from our school community and the wider community have been invited to share their life journey surrounded by a table of students, with guests rotating every twenty minutes. There will be additional tables set aside for female staff members and mothers who would like to join in celebrating this day with us.

Our keynote speaker this year is SMGS Alumna Lauren Tomasi. Lauren is a journalist with 9News Sydney. Lauren studied journalism at the University of New South Wales. Prior to joining Nine, Lauren worked as a Snow Reporter in the NSW ski fields.

Tickets for the International Women’s Day Breakfast are $25 for students and $30 for adults and can be purchased until Sunday 8 March 2020.

Please note that tickets must be pre-purchased and will not be available on the day. Students will be required to attend the breakfast in full school uniform and parents are asked to drop their students at Rydges at 6:50 am. The female student body will walk to school at the conclusion of the breakfast.
