Walford Celebrates International Women’s Day 2023

We School Captains were thrilled to host Walford’s International Women’s Day Morning on Wednesday 8 March. We felt very grateful to have the opportunity to address the girls from Years 6-12 in a Middle and Senior School Assembly.

Students were treated to an address by our special guest, Old Scholar Hayley Pearson (1999), and listened to Year 10 students Hazel Osborne and Annabelle Fleming in a duet of Scars to Your Beautiful by Alessia Cara. Hayley spoke about the importance of International Women’s Day to her, specifically the lessons she learnt from her time at Walford, and how this carried her through to her adult life and becoming the entrepreneur she is today, with her TV show, blog and fabulous magazine, Adelady. Hayley’s address was inspiring to us all and we thank her for so generously sharing her personal story.

Following the assembly, the girls enjoyed purple themed donuts, in recognition of International Women’s Day. We were thrilled to celebrate the theme of Embracing Equity with our Walford community, and wish everyone all the best for the remainder of Term 1.
