Dreaming Big 2021 on Zoom

Wednesday 6 October 2021

Sadly COVID meant we needed to adapt to an online format - the good ol' Zoom meeting, that we've got to know so well over lockdowns, provided a great way for over 120 Year 13 girls to connect with our inspirational line-up of speakers. The speakers gave many valuable insights and tips to help the girls set their goals and dream big.
