GDST Annual Reception

Almost 300 people attended the GDST Annual Rreception. Guests enjoyed performances from two of the finalists from this year’s Young Musician competition – pianist Seung Hye Park from Sutton High School, and singer Lucy Thalange, from Norwich High School for Girls, accompanied by Duncan Barlow, Director of Performing Arts at the school.

Following the announcement of our Alumna of the Year Award, our speaker for the evening was Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore, Oxford High alumna and professor of neuroscience at UCL. Sarah gave a wonderful and funny talk on the adolescent brain, illustrated with quotes and photographs from her own teenage diaries.
