The first CuriosITy Dinner

In November 2015, Brescia House School in conjunction with Microsoft appointed four Grade 10 girls to represent the School and South Africa as part of the 200 world-wide Microsoft Student Ambassadors. The girls have attended virtual webinars during the year, and were challenged, as part of the program, to run a project that will make a difference in the community. 

The girls identified that traditionally girls do not choose IT as a career path, nor do many girls select IT as a matriculation subject at school. On Wednesday 25th May 2016, the girls hosted the first annual CuriosITy Dinner; one hundred and thirty Grade 11 girls presenting thirty-six schools from all over Gauteng, long with one hundred IT or CAT teachers and various professionals from the IT industry.  Participates enjoyed a wonderful three course dinner and listened to talks by Lori Milner, author of the book “Own your space” and Amukelani Mombedzi from WeThinkCode. During the evening, the girls changed tables after each course to give them the maximum advantage for meeting professionals for the IT industry.
