The Seven Hills School Parent Lecture Series
For several years, Seven Hills has hosted a sold-out Parent Lecture Series which is held on weeknight evenings, 3-4 times during the year. The school mission, “to develop the intellect, engage the spirit, and foster respect for and responsibility to our world,” inspires them to present the series, not just to Seven Hills parents but, to the broader community of the East Bay.
They offer the Lecture Series gratis to local educators. If you are a teacher and wish to attend one or more of these events, please click here. All others, the fee is $15.
Each evening, dessert is served at 6:45pm and the program runs from 7:00pm. to 8:30pm. Everyone is welcome so please bring your friends and neighbors. Free childcare is provided to Seven Hills families.

Parenting: The Biggest Job We’ll Ever Have
with Laura and Malcolm Gauld
The Gaulds co-authored the groundbreaking book The Biggest Job We’ll Ever Have and are founders of the parenting workshops that emerged from it. Unlike other education books that focus on the child, The Biggest Job We’ll Ever Have focuses on a child’s primary teacher—the parent. The Gaulds explain that parents have an enormous impact on how their child approaches education and life. Their ten core beliefs for parents—The 10 Priorities— address how families can raise successful children of strong character in an achievement-at-any-cost culture.
With more than twenty-seven years of classroom and public speaking experience, Laura Gauld has earned a national reputation as a top motivational speaker on parenting, family dynamics, and character education. She has been featured on PBS, in her own parenting series on NBC in Portland, Maine, and numerous television and radio programs and in publications.
Malcolm Gauld is recognized as one of the nation’s leading experts on character education and parenting. His character development program, delivered at the Hyde schools, has been featured on the Today show, PBS, and 60 Minutes. A natural storyteller, Malcolm uses humor and personal experience to convey his practical, insightful, and timely messages on parenting, character, and leadership to a wide mainstream audience throughout the country.
