International Women’s Day 2021

A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.

We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.

From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.

Plant The Seed - Unpack Your Thinking

What is your answer to the following riddle: 

A father is about to bring his son to a job interview applying for a position at a large company in the city. Just as they arrive at the company’s parking lot, the son’s phone rings. He looks at his father who says, “Go ahead answer it”. The caller is the company’s CEO (Chief Executive Officer – Most important person in the company) who says, “Good luck son, you’ve got this’ ‘. The son ends the call and once again looks at his father, who is still next to him in the car. How is this possible?

Have a discussion about who the caller could be. Then watch the video to see what others said.

The visual thinking routine we are learning about this week is See, Think, Wonder. A routine for exploring works of art and other interesting things.

Now look at what a class of five year olds answered to the following questions:



What does Parker like to play? What might Parker want to be? 



What might Luna like to play? What might Luna want to be?

The coloured answers represent what the boys (Green)  in the class answered and what the girls (Purple) in the class answered.

1. What do you see?


2. What do you think about what the children answered for a boy and then for a girl? 


3. What does it make you wonder about girls compared to boys ? Here you might also wonder about why the girls and boys answered the way they did
