On Thursday 5th December, the Lower Fifth Lecture series opened with a thoughtful talk by Dr Katherine Brown, Head of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Birmingham. Dr Brown, an expert in the study of gender and global anti-radicalisation measures, discussed the dangers posed to young people by political and religious fundamentalism and the importance of education in helping to combat terrorism. This was a highly informative lecture and resulted in a detailed discussion. A number of students were greatly involved, with notable mention going to Thea, Imogen and Melissa for asking a number of astute questions.
On Friday 23 February, the KEHS and KES African and Caribbean Society hosted the first King Edward’s Foundation wide Conference. We had 120 students from across 12 schools from across the KEVI Foundation attend the day.
