Sports Dinner
Sandringham Yacht Club

Join us for a celebration of our students sporting achievements at the 2018 Sports Dinner with Champions.

This year's event will celebrate the role sport plays in the lives of our Mentone Girls with team and individual presentations throughout the evening while also providing the chance to hear from our keynote speaker, journalist, presenter, producer, documentary-maker, and author Angela Pippos.

Her Films was established in 2017 to create powerful documentaries about women. Throughout history the stories of women have largely been invisible - sidelined, ignored or forgotten. With its focus on storytelling, creativity and equality, Her Films' objective is to entertain, inspire and bring about social change.

Angela has written, directed and produced two television documentaries about the rise of women in Australian Rules football: League of Her Own, which aired on the Seven Network in February 2017, and Heroes, which screened on the ABC in August 2017.

Her third documentary about gender equality in Australia is in development.

In February last year Angela released her second book, Breaking The Mould - Taking A Hammer To Sexism In Sport (Affirm Press). It provides a fascinating insight into the changing Australian sporting landscape and it made the Prime Minister's Summer Reading List as nominated by The Grattan Institute.

Angela presented the sports segment on ABC TV News in Victoria for almost a decade.

Angela returned to the ABC this year as co-host of Saturday Grandstand on ABC Radio alongside popular comedian, Anthony "|Lehmo" Lehmann.

Angela has an Honours degree in Politics from the University of Adelaide.

All students in Years 5 - 12 and their families are invited to attend the Sports Dinner and we actively encourage parents to come along and celebrate their daughter's sporting activities and achievements.
