The Years 10-12 Parent Daughter Breakfast will be held on Tuesday 20 April from 7 am until approximately 8.30 am.
This morning provides a special opportunity for the parents of daughters in Years 10 to 12 to get together and mingle with their daughters and friends. Please join us for a stand-up breakfast outside the Joigny Cafe before hearing from our guest speaker, Senator Susan McDonald, Class of 1987.
Susan grew up on her family’s cattle property, 70km south of Cloncurry. She was educated by Correspondence School and Mt Isa School of the Air before attending Stuartholme as a boarder.
Her first job was cooking for a stock camp and working at Expo ’88 in Brisbane before going to the University of Queensland to study accounting with the idea she would go back to the family station to handle the bookkeeping.
But circumstances changed and she ended up in Brisbane where she worked in different businesses as an Accountant before going in as Chief of Staff for Natural Resources and Mines Minister, Andrew Cripps. Susan’s family had bought a chain of butcher shops in Brisbane and the Gold Coast and she ran them for 6 years before being elected to the Australian Senate for Queensland.
She has three teenaged kids and is now based in Townsville.
Susan was elected to the Senate in May 2019 after securing the No.2 spot on Queensland’s Liberal National Party ticket. She is currently the chairman of the Federal Government’s Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport Committee.
This is a complimentary event, however, for catering purposes can you please RSVP below. Parking will be available on the oval.
