S2 Girl Power Event

On Thursday 5th May, S2 girl pupils took part in an event that was meant to encourage young girls to pursue any career they choose and show them that they should not let themselves be held back by gender boundaries.

The event took place in the heart of Hawick and was run by Donna Wood. There were 6 different stations in total, each giving an examples of jobs that they might not have thought were an option because they are usually for men. Some of the stations included: The Royal Navy, Firefighters and a Paramedic. There was an amazing musical interlude by Sophie McLaughlin who sang beautifully. The day was informative and motivational and as a result many of the girls came away feeling very inspired.
