By celebrating International Women’s Day we provide an important opportunity for the whole school community to educate and inspire children about gender equality.

At Arturo Soria School, third, fourth, fifth and sixth graders had the astounding opportunity to meet three inspiring and wonderful women: Lara Jurado, Ana Bragado and Ana Pascual.

Lara Jurado is an English teacher who always dreamed of becoming a poet. She pursued her dream and she published a book entitled Escarcha Emocional.
