This week I spoke at MacKillop College to their year 11 Cohort, navigating ‘Identity 2020’. My co-panelists included the fabulous Jane Gilmore and Nevo Zisin – between the three of us we traversed issues of gender, sexuality and race.
Kudos to Jo Parker for curating this amazing program as part of her HeartSparks schools charter.
I was particularly chuffed during my presentation on celebrating the cultural diversity of students, to share the timeless magic of @thesukimonster and @lukalesson ’s spoken word poetry. These messages literally had the students stunned into silence- no easy feat for an auditorium of 17 year olds 😏
I seriously delight in this level of engagement, getting a chance to interact with critical thinkers. Diverse stories resonate & inspire.
