A lovely High Tea was held on the 8th March at the Rockhampton Botanical Gardens, celebrating International Women’s Day (IWD) with our Murri Court CJG Elders and Clients. We were very lucky to also have two special Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander guest speakers, Sandra Creamer and Lenique Lawson. Sandra and Lenique have their law degree and are working hard in our communities. Their inspirational journeys were shared with the group, encouraging us to think about our own journeys and ponder the IWD “Choose to Challenge” theme this year. A great morning was had by all.
