Philosophy

 
Why we teach Philosophy at Seville Road State School
We teach Philosophy at Seville Road State School because we believe learning should be challenging, exciting, surprising and fun. All the children at Seville Road are expected to enjoy school and to experience success with their learning.
 
We believe schools should be places where children wonder, puzzle, imagine, question and think – alone and with others; where everyone is courteous, respectful and safe; where everyone – staff and students – are happy to be at school.
We believe the reasoning skills children gain from Philosophy classes across the all grades contribute greatly to our learning environment.

  • Develops thinking, reasoning, conceptual skills
  • Challenges intellectually
  • Supports and includes all
