According to UNESCO, Two-thirds of the 774 million illiterate people in the world are female. It is troubling statistics such as these that drive us to raise awareness of gender inequality.

In celebration of International Women's Day today, we have been promoting our selection of inspiring fiction, non-fiction and biography books about women we admire.

We have books suitable for all age groups and reading levels and parents are more than welcome to come and borrow on behalf of younger students. Our books will be on display for one more week.

With thanks to Somerset parent Mrs Rhyll McMullen for donating a promotional pack, we have been busy giving away wristbands, badges and pens to both male and female supports of gender equality.

Our 1st XI Netball Team has also been featured in an article on the International Women’s Day website. The girls’ commitment, ambition and tenacity led them to claim the title of State Champions in 2018 and they such wonderful role models for our younger girls.
