On 24 April 2019, journalist, author and presenter Virginia Trioli gave the fourth annual Christina Montgomery Oration at the School. The Oration was a resounding success, with Virginia talking about the importance of living an authentic life, and why she has made this her personal mission.

Virginia spoke about her choices and decisions, and how they are a reflection of her true self, influenced by her inner voice. She also spoke of knowing what your value is, and the importance of women pushing themselves. Virginia’s presentation was a true inspiration, and we thank her for her candour. We are proud to call her a friend of The Foundation.
