Over 70 scholars from the USA, Canada, South Africa, and the UK attended a conference at Hampshire Collegiate School between July 14-16, 2010. Speakers included renowned authors, and university professors from the UK and the USA, all focused upon the Influence and Inspiration of Florence Nightingale, 1820-1910. The conference was centred upon Embley Park, Florence Nightingale’s home during her formative years, and was developed by Dr Russ Foster, Head of History at Hampshire Collegiate School. The Principal, Hector MacDonald said: “The flow of information and inspiration was staggering, reinforcing that Miss Nightingale’s work and her calling are just as valuable now as they were a century or more ago”.
Chief guests Dame Yvonne Moores DBE, FRSH, CIMgt, Professor Brian Moores, Sir Ewan Harper Chief Executive Officer of the United Church Schools Trust and the United Learning Trust, and his wife Lady Jenny Harper attended the Conference Dinner on Thursday July 15, 2010. (pictured)
