Yesterday the Junior School celebrated ‘World Philosophy Day’. Students donned robot, computer character, and futuristic costumes in accordance with our ‘Technologic in the Digital Age’ theme.
Our budding Philosophers were immersed in all activities as they showcased their critical and collaborative thinking skills to conquer technology-themed ‘Escape Quests’. Additionally, it was wonderful to see our thinkers display creative and verbal reasoning skills during our Communities of Inquiry.
We were thrilled to host Philosopher Michelle Sowey who facilitated a variety of these engaging sessions. A unique but relevant experience, our students were able to form logical arguments articulating the benefits and consequences of technology.
Our young Philosophers enjoyed a wonderful day full of thinking, entertainment, problem-solving, learning and most importantly, fun!
