Library News…… ‘International Women’s Day 2022’!

This week Library has flung it’s doors open with International Women’s Day in mind. International Women’s Day is a day that celebrates ‘the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women’ whilst also calling for equality – where men and women are treated the same. No one government, country, charity or group is responsible for it and this year’s theme is Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow. With this in mind children will be hearing stories about women who pioneered in paving a more gender equal world. From Beatrix Potter to Mae Jamison, Malala to Wangari, our school Library offers a huge range of children’s biographies that serve to inspire the mighty girls and boys of St Stephens.

Here are some of the books children will hear in the Library this week….
