  1. Thoughts for the New Year…

    In preparation for a new term, here are a couple of quotes attributed to Socrates to get you thinking:

    “I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.”

    “Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”

    And, our favourite, this one from Confucius:

    “If your plan is for one year, plant rice. If your plan is for ten years, plant trees. If your plan is for 100 years, educate children.”

    Happy New Year!


  2. What is the answer?

    Are you interested in exploring philosophy for children?

    Do you enjoy thinking outside the box?

    Do you want to deepen your teaching practice?

    Do you want to enriching children’s learning?

    Is the answer to all these YES?

    Then come to our residential weekend!

    Friday 10 January 6pm to Sunday 12 January 3pm, Ringsfield Hall, Suffolk
