Our Coorparoo State School Community would like to congratulate our Philosothon Team that participated in the 2022 Junior Philosothon on Tuesday 21st June. We are all superbly proud of our students’ achievements.
This event hosted by Hillbrook Anglican School was for primary school students from private and state schools. Coorparoo State School was represented by the maximum number of two teams comprised of eight senior students.
Stimulus and discussion topics were given out one week prior to the competition. Participants explored philosophical ideas collaboratively in a series of Communities of Inquiry and were judged by the quality of their participation.
Our brilliant thinkers won 1st place for the Logic Cup, where our teams competed against other schools to complete logic puzzles and riddles in a set time.
Talented Coorparoo students placed 2nd in the Communities of Inquiry earning the team a school Philosothon trophy and individual medals.
Aarya is to be commended for taking out the prize for Best Emerging Philosopher.
A big special thanks to Andrew Beencke for working with the children in preparation for the competition and to our Head of Department for Curriculum Sophia Ramsay for her work and support leading up to the preparation.
