Today is International Women’s Day and Melksham Oak Community School is joining the world today in celebrating the power of women all over the world.
This year’s theme is #EmbraceEquity and we’re committing to challenging gender stereotypes and ensuring equal opportunities for everyone regardless of their backgrounds.
International Women's Day has been an important date for well over 100 years. It is an opportunity to recognize the incredible achievements made by women throughout history; as well as a chance to highlight the excellent work done by ladies in our community. Importantly it is also a time when we can help inspire the female superstars of the future.
Just like the campaigners of the past, we can also help drive progress in our community through the considerations and actions we take.
To promote equality at Melksham Oak Community School our staff team is trained to make sure every student doesn’t feel restrained by their gender or background.
This International Women’s Day, let's break the bias. Teaching our students the importance of mutual respect is key to ensuring that everyone is treated with the same respect.
