IH Directors' Conference ONLINE 2020

28 Apr - 1 May 2020

We can't travel to see each other face to face in Sydney for our annual IH Directors' Conference this year, but the IH network has shown its immense strength through schools working together over the past few weeks.

From the 28th April - 1st May we will be holding a very special 'online' conference so that we can enable IH Directors from every one of our fantastic schools around the world to come together and help each other plan for the future, and enjoy the (virtual) company of their friends and colleagues. 

Although we are all apart, we may never have been more together. 

IH Directors - you can access the full schedule, times of sessions and the Zoom access links in the Events section of the Members' Area.
