Colton memorial lecture

CLSG students watching the Colton memorial lecture

On Wednesday 13 March students from years 9-13 were delighted to welcome Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, as well as her husband and daughter, to CLSG for this year’s Colton memorial lecture. It was an extraordinary opportunity to hear about Nazanin's experience of detention in Iran, as well as the resilience both she and her family showed in campaigning for her release. Following an extremely stimulating discussion, both facilitated and carefully formulated by the Head Girl team, students had the privilege to engage directly with Nazanin by asking their burning questions. Welcoming Nazanin to CLSG truly was the greatest honour, one that we are all immensely grateful for!
