Celebrating International Womens Day at TCL and Playforce

06 March 2020

We don’t have to tell you that Sunday 8th March is International Women’s Day. Here at Playforce we’re surrounded by amazing women but we thought we’d take the opportunity to celebrate some of the women associated with Playforce. We’d love to hear your stories about amazing women in your schools and settings, too. You can share them through Facebook or Instagram using the hashtags #IWD2020 #EachforEqual.
