This week the UWC Heads of the 15 colleges and schools gathered in Split (Croatia) for their biannual meeting. They then transferred to Mostar for the annual UWC Council Meeting with all guests wonderfully hosted by the students and staff of UWC Mostar – guests were invited to participate in Balkans Studies’ workshops, community service projects and a workshop taster on ‘Education in a Conflict and Post-Conflict Context’. The UWC Mostar students put on a stunning cultural show for Council members on theFriday evening.
Larry met up with Jakub Crcha (Slovakia and RCN graduate of 2015) who is currently working at UWC Mostar as a volunteer and making a valuable contribution.
The agenda for the Council Meeting was full of stimulating items – from community engagement strategy to a state of UWC address by the new Executive Director (Jens Waltermann), from a presentation by the Chair of the International Board (Sir John Daniel) to college / school annual reports.
RCN has offered to host the UWC International Board on campus in February for its biannual meeting – and the Board members are looking forward to visiting the College in mid-winter!
