Three Men on a Sofa

The long awaited clash between a philosopher, a scientist, and an historian took place on a Thursday evening on the 21st November, as organised by the Philosophy Society. Personally, I was very intrigued by the posters up around  College, inviting girls to come and witness “Three Men on a Sofa” debating some of the world’s most difficult and puzzling questions. On the sofa (quite literally), there were three “men” – or rather, two men, namely Mr Stacey and Mr Hoole, and a brave woman who took up the challenging task of opposing two humanities teachers, Mrs Dowdall.

In the 1990s, over 55 million children were born in India. If those 55 million children survived, today it is likely that over 50% of them would be living in poverty. Everyday it amazes me that there was a one in two chance that I could be on a very different side of that statistic and although I haven’t lived in India for many years, it was one of the reasons for why I was very keen to revisit my birthplace and to try to make some kind of a positive impact.

Autism is Misunderstood

Many people are under the misconception that an autistic individual is one who is socially awkward and has a particular special talent such as excellence in maths, drawing or piano playing. Yes, often someone with autism finds large gatherings of people, and social occasions very challenging, however, only about one in ten exhibit special talents. Someone with learning disabilities is perhaps thought of as an individual who cannot read or write and an individual who behaves like a child. The spectrum of learning disabilities is vast, ranging from mild difficulties with numeracy and literacy, to an individual with multiple and profound learning disabilities who cannot speak or move voluntarily. Perhaps it is time for us to revise our views of these particular stereotypes along with discussing the science behind these conditions.

As seen in Pegasus Pages (December 2012).

As the scary prospect of university applications looms for SFC1, it’s time for everyone to start thinking about Work Experience (especially Medics and Vets). The holidays are precious and ‘golden’ time for all of us, so in a way it may seem irksome to spend a whole week doing Work Experience.
