The Elephant in the Room


Please note the new dates for this conference.

Join us for the 2021 IBSC African Regional Conference at Rondebosch Boys’ High School (South Africa), aimed at boys’ school heads and educators (preparatory and high school).

Explore frequently avoided topics associated with private and former Model C schools. Address issues around racism, sexuality, masculinity, gender equality, hair, and many more. Take this opportunity to ignite honest conversations about tough topics and share ideas on how to tackle them. The idiom "the elephant in the room" describes an obvious, important topic that people avoid discussing because it makes some feel uncomfortable or is personally, socially, or politically controversial.

This conference caters to all age divisions and benefits school leaders and teachers alike.
