Ultimo Series

Leading educational thinkers and informed discussion

The Ultimo Series, a new initiative of International Grammar School, is on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Unfortunately, our program of topical and thought-provoking lectures and forums – planned to inform and engage students, parents, teachers and the wider community – has had to be postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Topics for discussion with eminent thinkers and Q and A were to include our impact on the environment, the world ahead and how to prepare our children for it, and the ethics of social media. 

We thank you for your understanding and hope you can join us in future, when we are able to go ahead with this series.
