September 6 @ 4:30pm - 6:30pm

Why a Philosothon?
Philosothons promote critical thinking, creative thinking and collaboration skills. Philosothons are different to debates in that students can agree with each other and the ultimate aim is for a group of students to build a collective response to a complex ethical or philosophical issue or problem. There are often cross curricular links and students who might struggle with written expression find philosothons a wonderful way to help them develop skills that are an asset to any working environment. http://www.philosothon.org/
