Wednesday 8th of March was International Women’s Day and Oakhill College celebrated the day with our ‘Young Women at Oakhill’ evening. The evening reflected the contribution Oakhill College makes in developing young women who seek excellence and make lasting and significant contributions to society. Also highlighted were the numerous opportunities Oakhill offers young women to become independent, responsible, and reflective citizens who make a difference. The evening was a relaxed social gathering where parents and potential students mingled with staff, current College parents, College leaders and alumni. Guests heard from current Years 11 and 12 students; along with Alumni of Distinction, Dr Nicole Brooke clinician, educator and leader in aged care, and Ms Catherine Cox, former Australian Netball player.
Nicole and Catherine spoke highly of the opportunities offered at Oakhill College and that the College had instilled them with the resilience to become successful women in their field of endeavour.
Mrs Chivers, a current Oakhill College parent, spoke about her positive experience regarding the advantages her daughter has gained from attending the College. At Oakhill College, each young woman leaves with integrity and an awareness of their gifts, talents, and capacity to achieve. Oakhill women have a sense of respect for themselves and others; they cherish positive relationships and participate positively and actively in the communities to which they belong; recognising that they are global citizens who are called to possess a global conscience.
