Brockwood has always benefited from visiting alumni who have taken the time to share with students and staff something of their life’s work and experience. These visits contribute immensely to the richness of the culture at Brockwood. For example, they assist students in thinking creatively about their “life after Brockwood” as well as staff in reflecting on the education we offer here and our ties with alumni.
Our first presentation this term was “Rainforest Etiquette in a World Gone Mad” by alumna and award-winning ecologist Suprabha Seshan. You can see this fascinating talk on our YouTube channel here:
Our second talk was by alumnus and psychiatrist Reuben Weininger. He talked about “What Brockwood was like in the early 1970’s; living with Krishnamurti; the yoga curriculum; and the influence of Brockwood on his further development as a psychiatrist.” See this inspiring presentation here:
Our third and last presentation this term is by alumna and Head of two Children’s Centres, Martina Street. This talk too will be on our YouTube Channel sooner than later: Brockwood Park School Youtube Channel
We would like to invite you to offer something for Present Tense next term. Please send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or give a call, if you’d like to either speak yourself or know someone whom you think would be good for such events. We may be able to help with travel costs (within Europe) if required, we can certainly ensure hospitality and a good meal. Most presentations will occur on a Saturday at 5:30pm but dates are negotiable.
