Future Hope

First Discovery Lecture

On Tuesday, Ms Georgie Dixon of Rugby School gave our first Discovery Lecture in
the Theatre. Nineteen children, from Forms I and II, listened attentively as Ms Dixon described her amazing sabbatical teaching year in Kolkata, India. Along with Ms Dixon,
we were pleased to welcome Mr Guy Steele-Bodger, Registrar of Rugby School.
The lecture seemed to inspire the children’s confidence, as Ms Dixon described the festivals and food she experienced in India. I listened with pride, as all of our children got involved and eagerly asked both enquiring and sensitive questions.In assembly next Tuesday, every child who attended will be presented with their own Discovery Lecture booklet to collect their Discovery Lecture commemorative stickers. Children will be presented with a sticker for each lecture they attend over the coming school year.
At our next Discovery Lecture Mrs Jo Colwell will speak on Environmental Issues. If your child would like to attend this lecture, please email Mrs Sanders vcs@beachborough.com.
