Event:        Watson's Against Racism
Date:          Tuesday 17th November 
Speaker:   George Watson's staff
Format:     Webinar


In June, the Principal made an important statement about the School's commitment to combating racism. Since then various individuals and groups in the School have been addressing aspects of our heritage and current practice and developing ways in which the voices of current pupils and Watsonians of colour can be heard. Our online event is an opportunity for those working in this area to report back and compare notes and for pupils, parents and members of the wider Watsonian community to hear what has been done and to contribute to the discussion.
