On Tuesday 2 March, Robert Gordon’s College host an “Impact and Opportunity relating to the COVID-19 pandemic” seminar as part of the wider “Wellbeing in Difficult Times” series in collaboration with Albyn School, International School Aberdeen (ISA) and St Margaret’s School for Girls. 

Hosting the second in a programme of four online seminars, panellists Jane Lunnon, Lena Carter and Graham Goulden join Robin Macpherson to discuss how parents and educators can create opportunities for children in a post-COVID world. 

Jane Lunnon is Head of Alleyn’s School in London and in 2020 was awarded Tatler Public Headteacher of the Year and will be joined by Lena Carter, Deputy Headteacher at Lochgilphead High School. Former police officer Graham Goulden also adds to the panel to share his experiences working on violence prevention and providing effective role modelling for young people.

Robin Macpherson, Head of College shared: “We are living through a paradigm shift that has come at immense cost, but also promises a brave new dawn if we think courageously. I am hugely excited to be hosting a panel debate on March 2nd with three of the UK’s leading voices in education. Lena, Graham and Jane have extensive multi-agency experience of working with young people and have significantly influenced public debate on education at a national level. We will be assessing the impact that COVID has had on the wellbeing of young people as well as exploring the exciting opportunities we can create for them as we come out of the curve.” 

The four independent schools - collectively known as Aberdeen Independent Schools (AIS) - coming together to create this free series of seminars is the first of its kind in the city. Seminars are open to all with places being booked through EventBrite. Register online:
