These sessions are aimed to educate parents, and the wider KLASS community, on the opportunities and challenges young people, educators and schools face today and in the future.

GerardThe first session on the theme of Highly Effective Ways to Achieve Student Outcomes, Dr Gerard Calnin will examine the evidence regarding student achievement drawing from his experience as a Senior Fellow with the Education University of Hong Kong and his work with organisations such as the International Baccalaureate and Cambridge Assessment. His thirty-year career in education has ranged from classroom practitioner to head of school, to government policy advisor, to researcher and lecturer at the tertiary level.
