Inspiring Women: International Women’s Day

On the 8th of March we celebrated International women’s day. During the careers convention in the evening, some stalls such as engineering and RVC, Willmott Dixon, Mott McDonald, Horticulture and Ecology had all female representatives, showing how female empowerment has increased greatly in the work place.

IWD was first observed on the 28th February 1909 in the US and has been a celebrated day ever since across the world. The day is focused on celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women globally which is something we greatly encourage every day in our own school.

Who is your female role model?

Emma Watson: Emma Watson begun a campaign called ”heforshe” promoting feminism.

Another famous inspirational woman is Michelle Obama.

“There are still many causes worth sacrificing for, so much history yet to be made.” – Michelle Obama (1964)

MUN Success

This weekend saw x2 AGGS delegations represented at the annual MUN High conference and Manchester High School for Girls. We had the interesting task of representing the USA and Algeria. Aside from the Trump references a great time was had by all and some very high standard of debating occurred across the board. We had some first time delegates and some very experienced delegates with us this weekend.

A huge well done to all involved, particular congratulations go to
