There is much to celebrate today for International Women’s Day!
Today highlights so much of the rich identity of Marymount, rooted in the RSHM and IB traditions of self-expression, empowerment, exploration, and connection with others.
If you don’t believe that there are coincidences in life, it may also be why today is a celebration with two important campus events: hosting of the SMASHED workshop with Her Excellency Tambo from South Africa and our Open Day.
We are honoured to have Her Excellency join us and have our girls learn more about the history and struggle for human rights lead by her father, Oliver Tambo. My thanks to Ms. Szymczak for coordinating this important event.
Our campus will shine as our faculty and girls will share your experiences of Marymount with prospective families this afternoon.
The photo below is of our very own Mimosa tree blossoms, given to me yesterday afternoon by our wonderful gardener, Mr. Dickinson. He explained that the original tree was planted in honour of Sr. Kathleen Fagan, former Headmistress and EAP Provincial. The mimosa (not so coincidentally) is the symbol for Women’s Day as it is both sensitive and strong, and considered a true wonder of nature.
