  • International Day of the Girl

    Upton Court Grammar School hosted an International Day of the Girl event for female students in Slough. Girls aged between 16 and 18 attended from several schools around Slough, organised by Thames Valley Police’s senior officer DS Nicola Pierce. Students met successful women from a range of industries, including the army, engineering firms and the police, and learned about the positive impact women have made in modern history.

     

    Students also held discussions on issues affecting girls and women worldwide, participated in the careers fair and developed skills such as CV writing and basic self-defence.

     

    Student Zainab Hussain, 17, said “International Girls Day was very insightful, and it gave us a chance to discuss worldwide issues that have an effect on us girls in today’s society.”

     

    The International Day of the Girl is a result of a United Nations resolution passed in 2011, which designates 11 October each year to be marked, focusing attention on the need to address the challenges girls face on a global level, and to promote girls’ empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights.

     

    Upton Court Grammar School Principal Mercedes Hernandez Estrada said “It was great to see young women from Slough schools debating real issues and gaining in confidence to speak out. Their contributions were insightful and heart warming and it has been an honor to host such a life changing conference".
