Guest speakers

This is a day and event to celebrate women's achievement, rise awareness against bias and take action to ‘level the playing field’.

Quite literally, and in quite different ways, the playing field metaphor is very appropriate to our two guest speakers and panel moderator.

They have spent much of their lives, on it or off it, as All Hallows’ students, as sportswomen, role models, administrators and game changers.

Eugenie Buckley (Class of 1988) is one of Australia’s most experienced sports administrators and the current CEO of Swimming Australia, leading our largest Olympic team towards a home Olympics and Paralympics in 2032 at a transformative time in swimming and sport. Eugenie gained a Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Law (Honours) from University of Qld and Masters in Sports Law from the University of Melbourne. Her impressive resume includes working for some of the world’s biggest events such as the IRB Rugby World Cup 2003, ICC Women’s World Cup in 2009; organisations such as Football Australia, ICC, Queensland Reds, Brisbane Roar and Netball Queensland. While at All Hallows’, Eugenie represented the School in Basketball, Athletics, Tennis and Touch Football, and was a member of the Queensland U18 Touch Team.

Jamie-Lee Lewis (Class of 2008) received a Cochlear implant at four years of age and went on to become the first deaf person to represent Australia in a hearing sport as part of the U20 Girls Water Polo Team. Jamie-Lee was also a member of representative teams for Netball and Volleyball and was awarded the prestigious Pierre de Coubertin Award in her Senior year. Jamie has never seen being deaf as a setback and is inspired by her mum’s advice of “you be you”. She has also demonstrated incredible strength and resilience through her battles with serious injury and mental health. She currently works in concrete flooring and construction. Jamie-Lee Lewis was a Whitty House Sport Captain during her time at All Hallows’ School.

Aislin Kriukelis (O’Connor, Class of 2002) studied Journalism and Arts at the University of Queensland and went on to work for the ABC and Channel 7. Aislin is currently a Brisbane-based reporter for Channel 9’s TODAY show. Aislin was a Prefect and House Sport Captain during her time at All Hallows’ School.
