The Loreto WoW group marked International Women’s Day (March 8th) with a virtual celebration throughout this week to raise awareness of the inequalities women and girls still face, to celebrate female achievement, and to inspire our students to appreciate and make the most of their opportunities. The theme this year is ‘Choose to Challenge’.

Each day a PowerPoint was shared in morning registration.  This included prayers written by WoW Reps along with the profile of a woman who embodies both the theme of International Women’s Day (Choose to Challenge) and also one of Mary Ward’s five virtues.

A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change.
