International Women’s Day

Sarah Ahsan SWIS News

International Women’s Day is celebrated all over the world on March 8th every year. It is a day to celebrate the social, cultural, economic and political achievements of women. And to raise awareness about women’s equality.

The day was celebrated virtually by SWIS (Settlement Workers in Schools) with the parents from Rose Avenue Public School on March 8th in the St. Jamestown Community. The event was well attended. There were cultural dance and singing performances and celebrated women who have positively influenced our lives. The participants got some good tips about self-care and healthy diet plans from a dietitian.

Although we were all separated due to COVID 19, there was a strong sense of togetherness and community through our virtual celebration. The participants were thankful for arranging the event and praised the performances.
