I will be a speaker as well.We will be doing a cooking class and games with the children.

I'm stuck. A suit seems too formal, and most of my other nice clothes are dressses. I will probably request a PA as I have a disability and get very overwhelmed with a lot going on, so could possibly change clothes?

Could I wear this to speak?

I am a very small size, 4-6 and buy childrens a lot and I don't really have nice trousers except for my suit

Jemima Kahn and Angelina Jolie have nailed this with a dressy long tunic top and trousers, always similar to local dress.

Is there a gender dress code, religious considerations?

What dresses do you have?

Dresses are fine.

No, it's Philippines so no gender dress code

Can you tell us where? As this may affect it.
In a hot climate loose clothes tend to be better, also cotton clothes are good. I think that outfit looks like it would be uncomfortable in the heat.

I am currently sitting in a rickshaw in Mumbai. It is about 30 degrees centigrade. I was at a parent conference today as a teacher. I am wearing a loose cotton top and a skirt, which is my usual outfit.

I have this but I havent worn it as it's really loose and I'd need either a shirt under or cardigan over.

It's very loose, accidently bought kids 16

The black dress with the shirt looks appropriate to me if it's not too warm. Formal colour.

If the black dress is light enough to wear in the heat, then I'd go with that.

It fits you really well and tbh, it looks like a Teachers attire, from their perspective.

It's important that what you choose fits you well.

I like the black dress.
I'm not sure about the white and blue one, can you try a picture from further away?

Another thought will the workshop be inside or outside? If inside then there may be AC which might change what you wear.

Both, I think games may be outside, I don't remember schools having A/C though.
