Celebrating International Day of the Girl

Posted on October 16, 2017


We had great fun supporting International Day of the Girl (Wednesday 11 October) with a whole school photo of the staff and students in the shape of the Venus symbol. More importantly, the photoshoot provided an opportunity for the entire Maynard community to show solidarity with girls and young females around the world in less fortunate circumstances than themselves.

“Our students are lucky enough to have one of the best educations on offer and they wanted to support the International Day of the Girl in recognition of the struggle and plight of girls across the world who have far less privileged existences,” said Deputy Head and Head of Pastoral Care, Mrs Tricia Wilks.

“The empowerment of girls and women around the globe starts at school, with a quality education and access to culture and information. Our entire Maynard community wanted to stand up and be counted in support of this notion.”
