International Women's Day 2022

International Women’s Day is always celebrated here at Kendrick, as it is something we feel passionate about all year around.  We have several displays around the school to commemorate this special day.  Our monthly Inspirational Woman display in the library features four women this month.

Four of our Year 9 students have worked together on some information to share with the school community including a presentation featuring over 30 inspirational women. They were asked to choose a favourite and these are displayed in the library along with their reasons for their choices. These have provided a topical conversation starter around the school as we all think about the inspirational women that have gone before us.

Two of our Year 12 students have put together a presentation about International Women’s Day to share with us during tutor time this week explaining this year’s theme of #breakthebias and advertising the society, The National Council of Young Women (NCYW), where they run sessions on a range of interactive activities based on topics around feminism and women.

Here at Kendrick School, we would like to wish you all a happy International Women’s Day – ‘Strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.’ Anon.
