Federal Member for Blaxland Jason Clare today visited Bankstown Girls High School to judge student presentations as part of the NSW Property Council’s third annual Girls in Property program.
Girls in Property is a NSW Property Council initiative to bring together schools, government, universities and business to increase the number of women studying science, technology, mathematics and design.
“This is a fantastic initiative to increase the number of girls studying science, technology, engineering and maths and to increase the number of young women choosing a career in the building and construction industry,” Mr Clare said.
“The program has already delivered fantastic results with one school seeing a 50% increase in female students studying economics and a 100% increase in the number of female students electing to study design and technology.”
NSW schools involved in this year’s program include:
- Asquith Girls High School
- Bankstown Girls High School
- Burwood Girls High School
- Cheltenham Girls High School
- Northern Beaches Secondary College Mackellar Girls Campus
- Randwick Girls High School
