Saint Ignatius College Geelong is delighted to welcome Nicole Livingstone OAM as the keynote speaker for this year’s International Women’s Day Community Evening.

Nicole Livingstone OAM is a former competitive swimmer, representing Australia at three Summer Olympic Games in 1988, 1992 and 1996, winning both individual and team medals.

Since retiring from the pool Nicole has been a commentator for Channel Nine, including hosting The Wide World of Sports Program.

Furthermore, Nicole has been on the board for Swimming Australia, the Australian Olympic Committee and most recently was the Head of Women’s Football (AFLW), only recently resigning from this position leaving the women’s league in the strongest position it has ever been.

During her time in this position, Nicole has overseen the growth of the AFLW from just eight teams in the opening season to all 18 clubs in 2023.

The College has successfully seen alumni being drafted to both the AFLW and AFL in recent years, and with the prevalent use of the new North Bellarine Aquatic Centre by our College swimming squad, the College Community is excited to welcome a leader in both sports to the College for this year’s celebrations.

Saint Ignatius College Geelong extends the invitation to attend this evening to our community via the QR code to the left.
