Ursuline Conference 2017


It has been a busy week for our Ursuline Conference delegates so far. Tuesday started with a panel discussion about the challenges of reconciliation, justice and peace in education. This was followed by a trip to Constitution Hill where delegates were addressed by Sr Maureen Welch. Sr Maureen's talk focussed on 'Listening to the Signs of the Times – The UN's Agenda 2030: A Pathway to Peace'. It was a most inspiring talk that lead to much further discussion over dinner at Moyo.

Yesterday the delegates were fortunate to hear Professor Adam Habib talk about the challenges faced by educational institutions. The second speaker of the day was Pepe Marais and he challenged the audience to 'take ownership' of their lives and to find their life strategy. The afternoon's discussions ended with Inspire Groups during which delegates could choose to attend workshops that most suited their interest. To end a busy day, they participated in a drumming workshop followed by a traditional South African braai!

We are all looking forward to another eventful and inspiring day today at our sister school, St Ursula's.
