Dragons can be found far and wide, with many going on to transform the world for the better, contributing positive change and innovation. We are bold in our lookout, developing curious minds, a sense of purpose, quiet confidence, and determination. The lifelong love of learning that we instil in our children is still evident in the ODs we see today, and we’re proud to lead thought-provoking discussions on important topics of the day within our wider community.

Arduus ad Solem, Reach for the Sun, is an opportunity for our whole community to join in these discussions and debates around various themes from Sustainability to Artificial Intelligence through to Education. The sessions welcome eminent members of our community to lead discussions and encourage balanced conversations around social, economic and political issues, with the aim of providing insight and understanding in what we can do to make a positive impact to the world around us.
