When CFGS Sixth Form Students Meet Afua Hirsch
Students at Central Foundation Girls’ School Sixth Form had the opportunity to meet writer, broadcaster and author, Afua Hirsch as part of the ‘Girls in Education’ events, hosted by their partner school, James Allen Girls’ School (JAGS).
Afua is a regular contributor to Sky News, C4 News, BBC2’s Newsnight, BBC 1’s Question Time and others. Afua writes articles for the Sunday Times, the Observer, Time Magazine and Vogue. Afua was a judge on the 2019 Booker Prize, and she is also one half of the fashion brand Sika.
The CFGS Sixth Form students that attended the event came from a wide variety of subject backgrounds, and the students studying the social sciences found the talk to be highly relevant to their A level courses. The audience also consisted of JAGS Politics students, as well as students from the Southwark Schools Learning Partnership. The students enjoyed the opportunity to ask Afua questions, as well as meet her after the talk.
