Welcome to the Nadim class page.

We are named after Nadia Nadim- an Afghani woman who fled the Taliban's previous reign with her mother and sisters for Denmark. She went on to represent her adopted country in football and also played for Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain. She was named UNESCO Champion for Girls' and Women's Education in 2019.
