International


Overview

The way the International society works is that guest speakers are invited to address the members on any topic of ‘international’ interest. We have two meetings during non-exam terms and one meeting in exams terms. Anyone is free to join the society – members are expected to attend all meetings. The guest speakers are asked to speak for 45 minutes. A few minutes are allowed for questions and then we break for refreshments. Boys can stay on and chat to the guest speaker informally over a cool drink.

Past Activities

In 2012 we had the following guest speakers: Professor John Rogers - ‘Time travel in the Middle East‘
