Holy Rosary School and ‘Philosophy for Children’
Holy Rosary School in Edenvale, Johannesburg, hosted internationally acclaimed British “Philosophy for Children” educator Jason Buckley.
Mr Buckley presented a workshop to teachers on embedding Philosophy for Children in the curriculum.
What is ‘Philosophy for Children’?
This is an approach to teaching and learning that puts philosophical enquiry at the heart of the lesson.
The workshop afforded the Holy Rosary staff the opportunity to engage with Mr Buckley, and fellow colleagues, as well as teachers from visiting schools.
The event was arranged by Diane Horsten and Monica Baart (Philosophy for Children coordinators at Holy Rosary) in conjunction with Kemble Elliott (director of Creative and Critical Thinking at Redhill School).
