Inspired by women making a difference in our schools

Lindsay Kirley, Grade 6 student

On International Women’s Day, we want to thank all the women and girls in our schools who are sharing their passion and making a difference. We are grateful to the students and staff that are leading positive change in our schools and community.

CBC KW featured three of our students who are spearheading initiatives that empower their fellow students and promote equality. We are so proud of these young woman who are true role models. We are inspired by your passion and want to thank you for lending your voice to raise awareness on important equity issues.

Lindsay Kirley, a Grade 6 student at Breslau Public School, advocates for women’s rights and equity in the LBGTQ+2 community. She told CBC, “I really like to make sure everybody feels, and that they can feel, good about themselves no matter what gender they are or race they are”.
