In honor of International Day of the Girl, Immaculate Heart Middle School participated in activities that united girls across the globe on issues important to them.
English teacher Amy Fujimoto’s class joined an online “Girl Talk,” where they spoke with students in Columbus, Ohio, and Montreux, Switzerland. The students discussed difficult topics in their own lives, such as bullying and body image issues, as well as larger social issues such as wage inequality.
Students in the Girls Who Code club also celebrated the day by joining the #Sisterhood movement. After thinking about what they want to improve in the world, the students wrote down related words or phrases on their hands. The students will take these ideas with them as they work on their final coding project, which they’re creating with the intention to make the world a better place.
