Inspiring philanthropist and the driving force behind women’s football, Dr Susan Alberti, was the guest speaker at our Pakenham Campus Senior School assembly yesterday, thanks to the efforts of Year 10 student Alysha Hall who arranged the visit.

Dr Alberti has been a tireless crusader against type 1 diabetes, after her daughter Danielle died of complications from the disease in 2001. She spoke to Beaconhills students about her three passions; women in sport and business, finding a cure for type 1 diabetes and her love of footy (in particular the Western Bulldogs, the club where she worked as vice-president to bring home the 2016 premiership flag).

She urged students to remember that “no matter how big or small the contribution, you have got to give something back to the community”. Dr Alberti is pictured here with Alysha Hall.
