There are few moments when we have the time to contemplate the larger issues of life, such as the future of our nation and our world, and how we can shape it.
The PMSA Annual Australian Leadership Lecture launched this week is designed in this spirit to promote thought and debate on important social issues, particularly around Australia’s national identity, gender equality and the environmental impact we are making on our earth.
As a key initiative from the PMSA’s Strategic Plan, this lecture is a new event held for our emerging leaders – more than 500 Year 12 students attending our PMSA schools – as well as their parents and education mentors.
The lecture is designed to promote thought and debate among our emerging leaders on important social issues, particularly around Australia’s national identity, gender equality and the environmental impact we are making on our earth.
A part of the Year 12 journey at a PMSA school, the lecture gives our next generation of leaders the opportunity to come together and listen to the view of an Australian whose life experience is remarkable and whose opinions and concerns about the future of our nation and our world are truly worth considering.
This year’s inaugural 2020 Annual Australian Leadership Lecture will be presented by Australian indigenous leader, lawyer, academic and founder of Cape York Partnership Noel Pearson.
If you or your child is in Year 12 at one of our four great schools, save the date and look out for the emails. If you or your child is in younger years, this is something to look forward to in years to come!
The 2020 Annual Australian Leadership Lecture will be held at 5.30pm on Tuesday 21 April 2020, at VPAC at Somerville House.
