Abelard at SPUR Festival 2014

Senior Students Spend the Day in Special Lectures at the University of Toronto

Last Friday, many of our Grade 11 and 12 students participated in the SPUR Festival‘s Young Scholars Program, through which they attended a series of special lectures at the University of Toronto. The lectures covered a range of topics, from Mathematics to the Cold War to the Mind-Body Problem. They were delivered by a host of excellent speakers drawn primarily from the U of T community, though among them was former Mayor David Miller.

The Young Scholars Program was designed to give high school students a chance to experience a unique day of learning at the University of Toronto, and to participate in lectures and discussions on topical issues. Abelard was thrilled to be invited and hopes to take part again next year in such a wonderful experience.

SPUR Toronto ran from April 3 – 6. SPUR Calgary will take place April 25 – 27.
