Head Master of Eton’s Education Conclave, Udaipur

Mr Tenduf-La was invited to represent the school at a seminar inUdaipur,India, to discuss ways of shaping the leaders of tomorrow. The meetings, chaired by the Head Master of Eton College, included seventeen participants, mainly Heads of the best schools in India, such as Mayo College and Doon, but also, for example, a representative from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. As well as brainstorming ideas, the group discussed ways of collaborating with each other, be it through exchange programmes or shared projects. Although these ideas are in their infancy, eventually they could offer our students some invaluable opportunities to further their own profiles and skills. There were some other extremely exciting and ambitious proposals, as well as discussions of how these top schools can help each other to groom global leaders. We were the only school invited from Sri Lanka, and were honoured to be included in a group of old and prestigious institutions, with such rich histories and traditions. Outside of the official meetings, invitations were extended to our school to send groups of students, or sports teams to spend a few days at these top schools.
