Mao's Last Dancer author, Mr Li Cunxin, was the Guest Speaker at the 2016 Cultural Dinner. Li gave an awe inspiring speech on making the most of every opportunity. Li and Mary’s daughter, Bridie is a Fresher at Women’s this year.
The Cultural Woman of the Year for 2016 was awarded to Peta Morton and runner up going to Thalia Baumann. The 2016 Cultural Convenor, Angela Julianto, did a wonderful job in hosting the evening and, as Dr Lyndall Bryant said, the next cultural convenor has large shoes to fill (well technically small shoes with large heels!)
