Year 10 pupils in the Girls’ Division enjoyed a day of lectures and debate complementing and extending their learning in school. The intensive one day program of short lectures followed by a debate gave students the opportunity to experience very high quality learning with expert lecturers. Girls spent the morning in the Arts Centre listening to a series of lectures including Time (this gets straight to the heart of relativity), The Politics of tolerance and/or Postmodernism and Does a Snail have consciousness?, and took part in a debate entitled 'This house believes in abortion on demand'.
