Welcome to The British School Conference, Rio de Janeiro


As we make our final preparations for our 2nd Education Conference, Crossing Frontiers: Leadership and Language, we look forward to welcoming leading educationalists to The British School, Rio de Janeiro, to work with our colleagues, delegates and invited guests. We are excited by the prospect of exploring the themes of leadership and language through a variety of engaging activities, workshops and keynote speeches. Once again, we are proud that our school is offering this outstanding opportunity for professional development, the prospect of lively interchange of ideas, and the possibility for networking. As we learnt from our very first conference two years ago, our 3-day event provides us with a rare chance to listen, discuss and reflect on our professional practices when compared to our busy day-to-day lives within our own institutions.

Come and join us in Rio from 10th to 12th April, share our experiences, and have a little taste of Rio – our very special city or Cidade Maravilhosa!
