    Art club celebrates 100 Years of votes for women and the continued fight for Equality

    This term students at the 'Big Highdown art challenge' club have been working together with Miss Garner to make a banner to celebrate 100 years of votes for women, and to support the continued fight for Equal Rights. The students have shown such commitment to the important topic and passion for closing the gender gap. The banner is a huge success and all students involved should be really proud of themselves.
