Home' The Eye : September 20th 2012 Contents Helping rural women all over the world
For the past 87 years, a very special day has been celebrated in New Zealand.
Rural Women New Zealand (RWNZ)
was established in 1925 by women who
wanted better social and economic
conditions for rural people.
The International Day of Rural Women,
organised by The Associated Country
Women of The World and scheduled
for October 15, offers a great opportunity
for southern women to participate in a fun
and informative day.
On a local level, Rural Women New
Zealand (RWNZ) was established in 1925
by women who wanted better social and
economic conditions for rural people. As a
result, RWNZ has been at the forefront of
rural issues, working to grow dynamic
communities in New Zealand.
RWNZ members will be celebrating the
day at the Corinthian Convention Centre,
Invercargill Workingmen's Club.
RWNZ Mid East Southland Provincial
President Ann Irving could not be more
excited by the upcoming event and
expects over 200 women to attend.
Ann says with the growing popularity
every year, ''it may lead to a bigger
initiative in Invercargill''.
The day starts off at 9am with registrations
and morning tea. At 10am current
Southland Rose of Tralee, Grace Campbell,
will speak, followed by Nathan Mikaere-
Wallis of Christchurch College of Edu-
caiton and the Brainwave Trust.
Nathan will speak from 10.30am to Noon
about babies' brain development and how
to give a child the best start in life. He runs
lectures in human and brain development,
language and communication, risk and
resilience. He also has a background of
working with children in counselling
settings relating to domestic violence,
sexual abuse and childhood trauma. He is
a trustee of Brainwave, and a foster parent.
After lunch, Lynley Soper will be talking
about career planning in the 21st century
followed by Ant Sutherland from FarmSafe
on the importance of helmet safety.
In addition there will be spot prizes, stalls
and competitions throughout the day. For
