2019 Webber Lecture with Professor Rufus Black

L–R Mr Gene Phair (Chairperson of the Board), Alex Hogan-Jones (School Vice-Captain), Professor Rufus Black, Oliver Burrows-Cheng (School Captain), Dr Rob McEwan (Headmaster).

On Wednesday 19 June 2019 we held our annual Webber Lecture. This year’s speaker, Professor Rufus Black, Vice-Chancellor and President at the University of Tasmania, delivered an inspiring, thought provoking address. He challenged those in attendance to consider an alternative ethical paradigm where place shapes our identity and our way of thinking. The ideas presented resonated strongly with all in attendance, from our own city of Hobart and its heritage buildings, our beautiful landscape and natural environment though to our personal place of birth, where we live and go to school. Our understanding of the world and ourselves starts with an understanding of place – where we are shapes who we are, even what we are obligated to do. Thank you to Professor for Rufus Black for being this year’s speaker!
