Seniors Celebrate International Day of the Girl Child

Year 10 Brains Trust behind the Day of the Girl Child Event.

 

Girlie pink balloons and streamers decorated the campus on Friday, the 11th of October, as part of the Senior School’s celebration of The International Day of the Girl Child. Secondary students wore free dress to raise funds for girls around the world who are denied schooling.

It all started in 10C, when Mrs Roshea Buksh shared the story of Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani school girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban in their fight to keep girls out of school. Northside students were horrified to learn that girls are forced into marriages, sometimes as little girls, and are regularly denied an education. After viewing Malala’s speech to the United Nation’s Youth Congress, our Year 10 girls were motivated to use their freedom to advocate on all girls’ behalf.

The students dreamed up a lunchtime event to promote The United Nations’ International Day of the Girl Child. Funds were raised through girl acoustic music groups, bake sales, and nail and face painting. These events raised nearly $1000, which will go to support Destiny Rescue, a non-profit organisation that rescues girls from human and sex trafficking and gives them a brighter future through education.

One male student in the college was so touched by the plight of poor girls that he gave his life savings to the cause—a heart-felt donation of $1500. His only request was: “Please ensure it goes towards the girls’ education and not a project.”

Mrs Buksh was moved to tears by this young man’s generosity. She said, “This is what happens when a school allows us to provide a place for advocacy and for students to be actively a part of the solution. Yes, you guessed it – I am one proud teacher.”

Well done Year 10 and Northside students! And a big thank you to Mrs Buksh for inspiring and overseeing such a meaningful event.
