Australian Human Rights Commissioner visits IGS

'What difference can one person make?' was the theme addressed at an informative afternoon at IGS with the Australian Human Rights Commissioner.

IGS Head Boy Madiba Doyle-Lambert and Head Girl Zahra Moloobhoy recently welcomed Australian Human Rights Commissioner Lorraine Finlay to the School.

“The meeting, on 2 September, reminded us about the inherent value of each person, regardless of background, where we live, what we look like, what we think or what we believe,” said Deputy Principal Wellbeing Mary Duma.

“Human Rights are based on principles of dignity, equality and mutual respect, which are shared across cultures, religions and philosophies.

“It was a special opportunity to hear about Human Rights in Australia and the challenges for our refugees and Indigenous people, and we thank the Commissioner very much for her visit.”
