Aiming Higher Conference

Thursday 5th - Friday 6th February 2009

Aiming Higher Conference

Aiming Higher - Authentic Christian leadership in 21st century schools.  This conference aimed to give room for stretching the mind, refreshing the spirit and connecting with other Christians in school leadership. Although the conference was affected by the heavy snow, delegates were able to draw inspiration and some real-life, practical insight into what it means to be a Christian in school leadership in the UK as well as in Uganda.
