Our Guests

Meetings with guest speakers have become an important part of the educational experience for the European School’s students. Guests expose students to real-life experiences and give students an insight and perspective about the speaker’s area of expertise. They essentially get a glimpse into the everyday life of the speaker, which they can’t get anywhere else. Meeting with famous people helps students build important connections between what they learn in their textbooks and the real world.
