New Socrates Programme to inspire student inquiry
Sydenham High is offering an exciting new programme of lectures and workshops for students to encourage them to question and examine the world around them in the tradition of the great Greek philosopher Socrates.
Running during the first two academic terms of the year, the Socrates Programme will include lectures and workshops, which promote a wide variety of topics, including the environment, the arts and technology. It is designed for senior school scholars from year 7 to year 13 and other students in these years who would like to take part can also apply for a place.
According to Socrates: ‘an unexamined life is not worth living’ and the programme, coined in his name, intends to foster just that mentality.
