International Women’s Day 2021

March 8, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

International Women’s Day is held on 8th March every year. Good Shepherd Student Care has planned an afternoon session to educate the students on the importance of International Women’s Day. This session aimed to allow the Primary 1 and 2 students to understand how far women’s rights have changed over the past 150 years and to break down the stereotypes about women.

The teacher gave a brief introduction on the topic of International Women’s Day which included the rationale in holding International Women’s Day every year. To check for the students’ understanding, the teacher asked the students if they felt that it was still important to celebrate International Women’s Day. All the students agreed that it was still important. They understood very well that they must continue to fight for rights to continue the effort in creating and maintaining equality between men and women.

The students raised their hands to ask questions about the topic

To ensure that the students remember some important facts on International Women’s Day, a mini quiz was conducted.

Many students paid close attention to the presentation and were able to answer most of the questions.

When the teacher explained the incident about Malala fighting for education, the question on “Are the girls able to go to school now?” was raised. Many of the students felt that they were fortunate to have the privilege of going to school and out of harm’s way.

Before ending the session, the teacher asked if any of the students had questions about the session. One of the students pointed out that in this day and age, she observed that her mother would do the laundry and her father would cook. They also mentioned that no one was responsible for all the household chores and that there was an equal division of work. Even though in the past, the females were responsible for all the household chores and child rearing, now, both males and females work together to complete them both.

To end the celebration of the International Women’s Day actiivty, the teacher gave some time for the students to write a “Thank you note” or an “Appreciation Note” for a woman whom they appreciate and are grateful for. Some of the students put in effort to create a beautiful note for the lady they appreciated and admired. Many wrote and drew a little note for their mother to thank them for their hard work in taking care of them.


The students wrote heartfelt messages to thank their mother for taking care of them and helping them.

The students gained a lot of insights in today’s topic as they understood the importance of celebrating women’s day and how much the past motion has affected the present.
