International Women’s Day

On the evening of Thursday 8 March, the Rector was accompanied by students Amy Perin and Sophie Bammann to a Reception with the Governor General of Australia and Lady Cosgrove, which was hosted by the Lord Mayor of Adelaide and the Lady Mayoress in the Queen Adelaide Room at the Town Hall.  His Excellency met with Amy and Sophie during the evening (pictured).  The Lord Mayor also spoke warmly of his personal connections with Aquinas, as his father was an Aquinian, and the College has one of its houses named after his Godmother, Dame Roma Mitchell.  Towards the end of the evening, the Lady Mayoress gave Sophie and Amy a private tour of rooms of the Town Hall and some of its treasures.
