Philosothon Win!

Congratulations to our Year 10 philosophy students and their teacher Daniel Webster who won the Philosothon on August 24. We were ranked highest out of all thirteen participating schools – 6 state schools and 7 private schools (including Ballarat Grammar who have won the last 5 years). The criteria used for assessment were Critical Thinking, Creative Thinking and Collaborative Thinking, aspects of the Australian Curriculum that the 10 philosophy class is based on and is built upon in VCE classes.
