The Inaugural Post

Thanks Marc for helping me finally set up a blog.  For those of you wondering what I’m up to in Sheffield, you can check back here; I’ll update regularly, I promise.

A brief introduction; I’ve been popping in and out of the Silverdale School observing their PSHE classes.  (Mandatory philosophy and citizenship classes for kids! Exciting!)

This afternoon, I will be observing the 8th years’ (~7th grade) class centering on the religious, moral, and philosophical implications on the Life of Pi.   I find it both entertaining and  a privilege to be privy to the tiny philosophers’ discussions.  I think perhaps the key to bridging the various learning gaps in our children is somewhere in this type of  quest for truth and reason.

Today’s topic: If There Is a God, Why Is There Evil? Is there an absolute truth?

Will post their insights later. Ciao for now.

  • Hello would you mind stating which blog platform
    you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m
    having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    completely unique. P.S Sorry for
    getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  • Excellent web site you have here.. It’s hard to find high quality writing like yours these
    days. I seriously appreciate individuals like you! Take care!!
