On 13 April a number of Year 7 students were introduced to Philosophy. The benefits of learning Philosophy are many; Philosophy is not a set of facts to be memorised, but rather a methodological approach to thinking and solving problems. It teaches students to approach problems from a number of different perspectives, as problems often have multiple solutions.
Two teams of Year 7 students contributed their thoughts along with other schools in the region during our Philosophy Workshop, in an experience which generated a great deal of controversial conversation. Tisha Eggleston led each session, presenting the students with an overview of some key areas of philosophical thought in what was a most rewarding day for all.
