A number of our pupils will be participating in this festival on 15 March in a reading workshop with author Patricia Schonstein, on a discussion panel with radio journalist, Pippa Hudson and in a creative writing workshop with ex-Herzlian and now King David English teacher, Mira Langer. Besides these opportunities, there are a wide variety of talks on the programme that are appropriate for adolescents. We encourage as many Herzlians as possible to attend this very worthwhile academic extension opportunity. Please see the programme and online booking information.
