The school has teamed up with The League of Extraordinary Women, co-founded by Cupcake Central director Sheryl Thai of Melbourne, to host workshops that share important life skills and advice with the next generation of female high-achievers.

School principal Marise McConaghy said it was essential young women learned to find their passion and integrate them with study and work.
