School Visit to
Senior School, Nicosia
Cyprus Girls Can was invited back to the Senior School, to talk to Year 8s about our campaign. We visited last year and were delighted to learn from the head of PE Ms Simister, that the attendance of girls in sports shot up after our visit 😊
In this week's visit, we spoke about how women are under-represented in sport on the island, what the campaign is doing to tackle this, as well as mentioning some of the amazing female athletes we do have and singing their praises! We also took some time to think about our sporting role models and reflected on body image.
Joining us was the inspirational Memnia Theodorou. She was the first Cypriot to sail from the UK to Australia! She spoke about how she stepped out of her comfort zone and encouraged the students to dream big!
