Lily Parr was a footballing legend and the first woman to be inducted in to the English football hall of fame. She was an icon on and off the pitch.
“In 1920 a local newspaper wrote about this talented 14 year old: “There is probably no greater football prodigy in the whole country. Not only has she speed and excellent ball control, but her admirable physique enables her to brush off challenges from defenders who tackle her”.
Head of House: Miss Hallauer
“Lily Parr had to overcome challenges and was a role model. I am very proud to be the Head of House Parr because we are working together to achieve great results . Members of House Parr should aspire to work as a team, be kind, try new activities and never give up when facing challenges.”
House Captain: Tammy Chan
“Lily Parr lived in a society when women still didn’t have the right to suffrage. However, the patriarchal society she lived in did not restrain her from her ambitions, instead these seemingly unequal and unfair prejudices only motivated her more to be the successful woman she was and is remembered for. I hope that all Bishop’ students can learn from her willingness to adapt to society’s image and persevere with their ambitions, no matter whatever is in their way.”
