On Friday 8th March it is International Women’s Day; a day where globally there is a celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender equality.
At Culcheth High School, we are encouraging students to accessorise their uniform with something PURPLE, for example wristbands, ribbons and badges. On 8th March, we will be holding various charity activities, proceeds of which will go towards helping girls in the UK who cannot afford certain necessities which we take for granted. Some of the activities occurring include name the famous influential women when they were younger, and sweet pong.
We at Culcheth High School feel that this a very important cause to champion. We are looking forward to students leading sessions on the importance of women in history and how women can and have impacted the world. Year 11s will be visiting the younger year groups to share our own experiences, along with interesting information about influential women such as JK Rowling, Brooke Boney and Dr Mae Jemison, who have all worked to improve the world and inspire us in different ways
