As part of the learn together program this week, the children have been learning about the lives of women who have made a difference or who are known for their contribution to humanity. Each class chose a woman that they found particularly inspiring and presented what they learnt at assembly today. We had some incredible presentations and projects and learnt about so many powerful woman who have made a difference in the world.
Our theme this week was also gender equality. As part of this , we asked the boys to wear some pink to school and the girls to wear some blue to show that it’s okay for a boy to love pink just as much as a girl , and that blue is not just a ‘boys’ color – girls can wear blue too ! Thank you to all the boys and girls who made an effort with their colors . It was great to see everybody taking part.
