Girls mark centenary of voting rights for women


Girls at Sibford Junior School marked the centenary of voting rights for women in February by posing as Suffragettes. Edward Rossiter, Head of the Junior School, said: “During our morning meeting we spoke about equality and Quaker Values and explained


that Tuesday 6 February 2018 marked the 100th anniversary of the introduction of the Representation of the People Act … a piece of legislation that, for the first time ever, enabled some women over the age of 30 to vote and paved the way for universal suffrage 10 years later. “The pupils were outraged by the unfairness of the


situation and enjoyed dressing up in protest.” Year 6 pupil Summer said: “I think it was really bad


because the women were living in the same world as the men but they weren’t allowed to speak up and have any input into what went on.” Added Isobel: “The women had to pay taxes and


obey the rules but they weren’t allowed to vote. It was very unfair and I’m glad it was changed.”


The sound of Sibford On Wednesday 14 March, Sibford students took over the stage at the Mill Arts Centre in Banbury to present an evening of classic and contemporary songs. Performing at The Mill is a wonderful opportunity


for students to experience working in a professional environment.


Head of Music Fiona Hudson, said: “Students from


Years 8 to 13 were involved and it was fantastic to see so much young talent developing. Well done all who performed, it was a truly memorable night of music making.”
