In recognition of International Womens’ Day 2019 Transition Year students were invited to attend the Inspiring Women event at Google Headquarters. The event was organised by Google and South Dublin County Council Partnership and was addressed by Minister Katherine Zappone. The event was a celebration of the amazing women and girls who are part of our community who every day make a difference to our world.
As part of the Active Schools Initiative, we are also promoting 'Women in Sport' this year. We have decided to link in with the 20x20 Campaign in order to promote this. 20x20 is an all-inclusive movement to shift Ireland's culture perception of women's sport by 2020 with:
- A 20% increase in media coverage of women in sport.
- A 20% increase in female participation at all levels of sport.
- A 20% increase in attendance at women's games and events.
We invited all girls involved in Sports Clubs both inside and outside of school, to attend a photoshoot to celebrate this. The photos will be put on display around the school with the hope that we motivate our girls to continue training, and to encourage new faces to join them too. Pics
