International Women’s Day 2020


Inspiring females have been honoured at Comet Bay College ahead of International Women’s Day 2020 thanks to an initiative designed by students.

Dean of Positive Culture Team Kelly Hulin said student leaders workshopped ideas for different awareness campaigns before settling on the postcard honour board, a concept developed by Year 8 girls Grace Robertson and Chloe McLellan (pictured).

“This has been a really inspiring way to get students to think about influential women in their lives,” Ms Hulin said.

“The names put forward have included teachers, coaches, sisters, bosses, mothers and other student leaders.

“We’ve had hundreds of postcards submitted, but what’s really important is the concept encourages students to write down why they are acknowledging someone, and that’s been very interesting to read.”
