This is the fifth year of the SHAW program where a variety of presenters are booked to assist and inform our students on how they can improve their health and wellbeing.

This year I am very pleased to introduce our Keynote Speaker: The Honourable Judge Amanda Chambers

Her Honour, Judge Amanda Chambers was appointed to the County Court of Victoria and President of the Children’s Court of Victoria on 9 June 2015. Prior to these appointments, Judge Chambers served as a Magistrate of the State of Victoria for over eight years and was Supervising Magistrate of the Sexual Offences List for the past three years. She will be discussing a variety of topics from resilience, good decision making and consent, amongst other topics very relevant to young people today. We are grateful for having the opportunity to share her story and expertise.
