National School Walkout

Posted: 15/03/18

Year 11 girls joined together in solidarity with American students to stand up against gun violence one month after the Parkland School Shooting.

The student-led event, which included a minute’s silence for the Douglas High victims, a talk on the recent tragedy and the positive change that came out of the similarly tragic Dunblane massacre in 1996, was well attended by girls of all ages. The whole school, from staff to students, showed their support by wearing orange #ENOUGH stickers throughout the day.

Godolphin student, Sophia, who organised the event alongside her classmates, Georgia and Florence, said:

“I was deeply moved by the campaign and inspired by the students leading it; especially after watching videos of their speeches. I am really passionate about the issue, so I felt that I had to do something at my school to show support.
From tragedy, we can bring about positive change. I wanted to show American students that Godolphin and Latymer are united in supporting their cause and are determined to make a difference."
