29 January 2015: Baroness Caroline Cox visits the sixth form

Baroness Caroline Cox is the founder and CEO of an organisation called the Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust. She visited SHSG sixth form on 29th January to share some of her experiences in the field of international humanitarian aid with the Year 12 and 13 students.

This was an amazing opportunity for the students to gain insight into the depth of human suffering worldwide but also showed them ways by which people can try to help. Baroness Cox's visit was both thought-provoking and inspirational and we are very grateful that she has given her time to come and visit SHSG.
