Head Lights

donna-evansWednesday’s presentation to Years 7 to 10 girls by Melinda Tankard-Reist, alerted them to the objectification of young girls in contemporary society where toddlers are encouraged to wear high heels and six year olds, push up bras. Yet, Miss Grace Lawrance, Glennie’s first Head of School, who was the subject of Mrs Ashley-Cooper’s Founder’s Day Address, had the foresight to suggest that self-worth was not based on gender but their character, when she said to Glennie girls, may you be ever strong and fearless, gentle and true, and may your lives be ever guided and sustained by faith, rooted and grounded in love. (Miss Grace Lawrance: 1925)

Sometimes, we have a lot to learn from our past!

Mrs Donna Evans
Deputy Head of School
Head of Middle and Senior Years
