International Women's Day

We are thrilled to continue our tradition of honouring the incredible women who have made a significant impact on history, society, and culture.

Throughout March we will be hosting a variety of events and activities that educate, inspire, and empower our students to embrace their own unique strengths and potential.  From guest speakers to workshops and discussions, we are excited to provide our girls with opportunities to learn from and engage with strong female role models.  We believe that by celebrating the achievements of women past and present, we can inspire the next generation of leaders, innovators, and changemakers.


Inspirational Women

Together we continue to uplift, support, and empower each other as we strive for a more inclusive and equal future for all. Here’s to the incredible women who have paved the way and to the remarkable girls who will continue to make history in their own unique ways.

I am enjoying being a student leader on the food committee because I can put my ideas out there and share ideas of my form too. It shows that Year 7 has a voice. This role has really helped me to listen to other people which I think is a great thing to be able to do.

Food Committee Student Leader
The best thing about being a Digital Student Leader is meeting many new people and working with students from Year 7 to Year 11. This leadership role really helps to develop teamwork skills as many of the resources we make, we work on with other leaders, friends and peers, in groups.
