News Feature: International Women's Day at CFC
By Ms Gelder
Excitement was in the air as a small group of Year 7, 8 and 9 girls visited Stamford Bridge, Chelsea last term to celebrate International Women's Day (as part of the Goal Getter's Scheme). The pupils were split into groups, working with girls from other schools from across London, designing and creating their own "dream" female football team, consisting of amazing female role models both within and beyond the sporting world. The day was empowering for all present, and the girls had the opportunity to listen to and meet some female Chelsea football players. We left feeling very uplifted, having discussed allyship and women's rights throughout the day.
