International Women's Day

IWD Students

Staff and students supported International Women’s Day at The Gateway Academy recently with cake sales and a ‘guess the jelly beans in a jar competition’, raising in excess of £150!

International Women's Day events honour and celebrate the achievements of women all around the world, ranging from small random informal gatherings to large highly organised events.

Organiser, Miss Jolene McManus, said, “Raising over £150 is amazing and has completely exceeded my expectations! I could not have done this without our wonderful bakers, Lynda and Phil. It was very fitting to have two admirable women supporting International Women’s Day. It was brilliant to hear how everybody enjoyed the lovely treats. My other little helpers who sold cakes at break times were the wonderful Student Leadership Team. Don’t forget you can still guess how many jelly beans are in the jar for a small donation of 50p – see the lovely Denise on the Gateway reception to guess and donate!”
