A huge cheer resounded from Napier Lodge at Ranelagh on Wednesday -Happy International Women's Day. Once the doors opened the pure exuberance of the women in our community poured out. There was music and dancing , quizzing , banner-making ... and food , and oh the food. Food from Algeria, Lithuania, Romania, Albania, Pakistan, Bangladesh Russia, Nigeria, Ghana - food that showed a real sense of these remarkable women -the parents and carers of our children.
It didn't take much persuading by these brilliant women for the Leadership team to join in with the tasting and, of course , the Dancing.
'I tried the most delicious food,' remarked Head of Ranelagh, Miss Welburn, 'but what really fed my spirit was the overwhelming strength and pride of all the women in this room today .' We make sure that inspirational women are a strong part of Ranelagh's curriculum ;to learn from and to inspire . From the women who celebrated in the room today, it is obvious that our children have inspirational women right in front of them: at home . A huge thanks to the wonderful women in the PTA for organising , and our amazing Community.
