INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY 2020
International women’s day is an intentional celebration of women for all they have accomplished and given us. Women are dynamic forces outside of motherhood, we are doctors, directors, CEOs, researchers, politicians and we are also simply human beings.
At EMH we merged International Women’s day and Mothers' day with our visiting day. Our students presented poetry, had a little talk show about gender discrimination and equality, we were able to hear from a few parents how important giving women space was.
We ended the event with games like; how well do you know your mother; where the children also had a chance to say what they liked best about their mother and a gele tying competition.
