International Women’s Day is widely known and celebrated across the globe. On this day, women everywhere are cherished and honoured, as they should be everyday. This day of recognition is undoubtedly deserved by all women.

The Convent High school, as the island’s leading female educational facility, of course observes International Women’s Day, emphasizing the importance of women to society, We, at the Convent High School are taught to use our “lamp of knowledge, wisdom, virtue,” to guide ourselves to greatness.

Today, women are seen as the “light[s] of hope, faith and love.” Let us use this day of tribute to remember and reflect upon the lives and hardships of women worldwide. Let us be proud of ourselves and our achievements, regardless of how insignificant they may seem. This International Women’s Day, I implore that all women relax and simply take pride in being a woman.
