Boys have been touring the world exploring culture, politics and history in what has been a busy term for society speakers.
With clubs and visiting lecturers online, more boys than ever have been broadening their horizons by tuning into the eclectic and vibrant mix of societies on offer at Harrow.
There are more than 80 clubs and societies which provide a platform for boys to explore their interests and passions and many of them offer a weekly chance for an individual to research and present on a subject of interest. Many also welcome visiting external speakers.
In the last few weeks the Trevelyan Society heard from Edred Clutton (The Knoll) who spoke on ‘Exploring the anti-war movement within the US during the Vietnam War’; the Sheridan Society explored ‘How to write fight scenes’ with Indi Abrams (The Grove); and the Oriental Society looked at ‘Origins of Chinese Ceramics and its Significance’ with Kiefer Yeo (The Head Master’s).
