Gender Equality in Sport Workshop

Thirty students from Years 8 to 10 attended a series of workshops on gender equality in sport recently. Olympian, Jemima Montag was the keynote speaker and host who recently won a gold medal at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games.

Students also listened to a panel of women elite athletes, and had an opportunity to ask questions about nutrition, women as athletes, mental health and high performance pathways.

In addition, students were given a tour of the St Kilda Football Club and were shown how high performance athletes at the St Kilda Football Club train and recover during the week.
