The Time Is Now - A Student Conference

We're very excited to launch a new student conference that will open this year's Enrichment Week.
24 Jun 2020

On Monday 29 June Habs Girls students will have the opportunity to kick off their Enrichment Week with a conference of internally renowned speakers. Mr Sabato, Deputy Head (Academic) writes:

Next week’s off-timetable week begins with our first student conference that aims to tackle the major issues that will impact our students today and in future. We have pulled together a stellar line-up of speakers who will be addressing the school community on topics including systemic racism, climate action, media manipulation, ethics in design, medicine and technology and gender and identity.

A full list of speakers with their biographies can be viewed here.
