Fogarty EDvance’s 2016 Principal Dinner was held in November and brought together the principals of current and past schools that have been involved in the Fogarty EDvance program since 2012. The principals, along with members of the FED Advisory Group and Board of Trustees, celebrated the achievements of the graduating schools of Cohort 2 and the continued successes of the Cohort 1 schools in advancing student outcomes in their schools.

Susan Hunt, Chief Executive of Perth Zoo shared her leadership experiences and perspectives with the group as guest speaker. Susan has had a broad ranging career from indigenous affairs and inter-government relations through to her first role at Perth Zoo in 2000. She described the opportunities and challenges in leading the Zoo towards a shared mission and clear strategic direction over the past decade – one of leading conservation and education efforts through the support of Perth zoo visitors and patrons. She also spoke about her work on the global stage in her current role as President of the World Association of Zoos and Aquaria.
