Why a girls’ only school? This is of course, the preference of the individual, but the latest international surveys tend to highlight several very important reasons why this is increasingly becoming the option of first choice.
On Friday the 13th of July, the communications task team hosted the first #metoo dinner event. Guest speakers included the dynamic Sharon Gordon from Dignity Dreams as well as our Old Girls: Nicola Den Hond (Chairlady), Thabi Kgaka (Business Network portfolio) and Samhaa Seedat (Head Girl, 2015).
It was an evening filled with rigorous discussion, grappling with uncomfortable questions and talking about the complexity of values and attitudes towards women and men in our society.
The girls represented their school with true #andreanpride at this event and we hope to see the momentum continue to grow in the future.
Thank you to the staff, parents and girls who took time to join the conversation and for the generous donations made towards Dignity Dreams.
