Australian High Commission

On Wednesday evening, Channing girls were the guests of the Australian High Commission. On arrival we were able to take in the fantastic architecture from the grand chandelier (of Gringotts Bank) to the spectacular (Australian) marble staircase spiralling up. We were addressed by 6 diplomats to gain a much greater understanding of what life is like as a diplomat, the different ways to become a diplomat and how they found what job they were interested in. We also learnt about the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and lastly, the floor was opened up to questions. This was such an incredible opportunity that all the Channing girls, teachers and parents will always remember. Thank you to the Channing parents who kindly arranged this event for us! ‘It was absolutely fantastic’ was the overall conclusion!
