We had:

Steven Satour, campaign manager at R U OK? talking about ‘Stronger Together’, a targeted suicide prevention campaign for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The campaign encourages people to engage and offer support to their family, friends and colleagues who may be struggling with life. The resources feature engaging and authentic stories that promote a sense of connection, hope and identity.

Cathy Hunt, Executive Producer of Woman of the World (WOW) Australia and WOW cairns talking about the Spinifex Gum performance that they’ll be hosting, and the broader messages behind WOW Australia and WOW Cairns.

Dr. Fiona Longmuir, Lecturer in Educational Leadership at Monash University talking about Leading schools in lockdown: Community, communication and compassion key during remote learning. Schools across the globe have experienced widespread closures, changes in physical arrangements to ensure physical distancing and reductions in the range of activities that students can participate in. In Sydney and Victoria, the closure of school sites is continuing to see students and teachers move to a remote learning model.
