On the 27th February, at Deakin Edge within Federation Square, over 220 guests enjoyed the 3rd annual Inspiring Australians’ Oration.
In addition to many of the Victoria Branch members, there were students from invited schools Camberwell Grammar School, John Monash Science School, Ringwood Secondary and Strathcona Baptist Girls Grammar.
The event itself consisted of a musical performance from Imogen Spendlove, an interview with the OAA Foundation Scholarship awardee Juanita Kelly-Mundine and of course a delightful Oration by The Rt Hon the Lord Mayor of Melbourne Sally Capp.
The Lord Mayor spoke about the qualities of Inspiring Australians which she admires, which was great to hear from different perspectives with her experiences.
At the conclusion, many students enjoyed their time in discussion with the Lord Mayor, Imogen and Juanita after the Oration.
The Oration has now established itself as one of the major events undertaken by the Victorian branch and will again be held in 2020.
A special thanks to Paul Wheelton AM and Angela Wheelton OAM, for their continued support of the event.
