When: 8 March
What: International Women’s Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women’s Day is a national holiday.
Why: Suffragettes campaigned for women’s right to vote. The word ‘Suffragette’ is derived from the word “suffrage” meaning the right to vote. International Women’s Day honours the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates women’s success, and reminds of inequities still to be redressed.

I will be posting a weekly debate and would like all students to voice their opinion by commenting. However, please remember the rule, ‘once posted forever noticed’ before leaving your comments.
Next week is ‘International Women’s Week’ – with that in mind please consider the following statement:
“Single sex schools are better for students”
Please comment to add your opinion, start your comment with “I agree” or “I disagree”, giving a reason for your answer
To mark Internet safety day some 6th form students have put together a presentation about Internet safety for you to discuss in tutorial time.
Remember our catchphrase when posting online – “Once Posted Forever Noticed”.
Hope you like it and be safe online!!!
A recent BBC survey has highlighted that teenagers are most vulnerable to cyber bullying between the ages of 13-16. Safer Internet day is about thinking about your online activity and making sure you are safe and respectful at all times. Below are some links and videos about the campaign. remember if you have been a victim of cyber bullying or wish to talk to someone about being safer online you can use the Sharp System to speak privately to a mentor or contact CEOPs (link in sidebar). Please add comments and let us know what you think about internet safety.
