Community Learning Program

Leading educational thinkers and informed discussion

The IGS Community Learning Program brings together leading educational thinkers to promote informed discussions about current areas of interest in parenting and education.

The program is a series of public seminars and events developed by IGS staff and the PTF Committee. External guests and internal speakers are invited to present on topical issues including mental health, digital citizenship, early learning, and adolescence. These events are open to parents, teachers and interested community members.
