Celebrating 25 Years
The beginning of a new year is always an exciting time with plenty of optimism and opportunity to set ambitious resolutions for the year to come. I was very privileged to share the first week of 2016 with 163 student leaders from New Zealand, Asia, UK, USA and Australia at Bond University. These extraordinary young women brought their energy, commitment and optimism to the conference. It was an exhilarating experience and a tangible realisation of the Alliance's commitment to empowering young female leaders. Watch SLC 2016 video ››
The Alliance turns 25! In 1991 the Education of Girls in Girls' Schools Focus Group was formed in Victoria, Australia. This group later evolved into the Alliance of Girls' Schools Australasia. And 25 years on the Alliance has 150 members in five countries and represents more than 132,000 girls and 10,000 educators. There are a number of exciting and innovative events planned for 2016 as we celebrate this milestone - including our Biennial Educators' Conference, Real Girls Real Women - earlybird registration is open until 28 February.
We've given our website a facelift and enhanced its functionality with a fully searchable research library and improved member access - with individual logins (rather than shared school-based access). Visit our new site and register for access to member pricing, member-only events, research and resources.
The next edition of In Alliance, our biannual magazine, will focus on entrepreneurship in schools. Contributions of academic, feature or opinion articles are welcome and should be submitted by 2 March 2016 to firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope you'll join us at one of 2016 events and help celebrate our 25-year anniversary.
