A number of students from different committees in school got the opportunity to attend an International Women’s Day event organized by Mary Hanafin and the Ambassador of Morocco. Students got to listen to the stories of truly inspirational women from both Ireland in Morocco, such as;
· Bouchra Baibanou- a renowned champion alpinist in Africa and the Arab world,
· Sinead Buckley-Quinn- local entrepreneur and owner of the Irish Design Gallery,
· Merieme Chadid- an explorer, astronomer and one of the world’s greatest living scientists,
· Eimear O’Connor- Director of the Tyrone Guthrie Arts Centre and Art Historian.
Many thanks to everyone involved in organising such an inspirational event.
