Our next Parent Education seminar will be held on Thursday 23rd April and will be presented by Dr Stephen Sagarin.
Glenaeon’s pedagogy is based on an understanding of the developing human being, an age appropriate education that fosters an exploration of the highest aspirations of humanity grounded in a practical education in the demands of the contemporary world. During this session, Stephen will discuss the balance in education between the practical and the ideal.
