THE importance of women in government and business issues were on the itinerary as a federal minister toured the northern suburbs on Friday.

Following a stop in Butler to promote a $17.7 million national jobs program for older people, Jobs and Innovation Minister Michaelia Cash visited a Sorrento school.

At Sacred Heart College, Senator Cash talked to Year 11 politics and law students about the Senate’s role and how the government constructed and debated legislation.

She spoke to the predominantly female class about the importance of women in government and how hard work and determination have been fundamental throughout her career.

The students asked the minister and Moore MHR Ian Goodenough about their individual roles and responsibilities in government.

The pair later joined local business leaders and members from the City of Joondalup’s economic development team for a round table lunch in Hillarys.

Conversation at the May 18 lunch focused on Federal Budget initiatives to promote business growth, entrepreneurship assistance and tourism opportunities.

The recently established supermarket supplies the everyday essentials as well as gourmet goods.

“Australia has record high employment, with record full time jobs and record jobs growth,” Senator Cash said.
