Radley College and St
Helen’s and St Katherine’s ‘Harris Society’ dinner.
Radley College dining-hall was the setting for a night of intellectual debate
and discussions, as thirty buzzing A-Level geographers from both schools
discussed many issues surrounding the world’s political stability and
geographical matters, such as immigration and climate change.
we greeted the girls at 7 o’clock on Tuesday 1st March, we acquainted
ourselves with them over drinks, before sitting down on three tables of ten in
Hall, where we were given four key global questions. We engaged in intellectual
discussions while we enjoyed a lovely three-course supper. We talked about
issues such as Climate change and overpopulation and whether geography is more
important than history. We engaged in great discussions on these hugely
important issues, as well as debating about much wider topics, such as the
welfare state and the EU referendum. At the end of the main course, boys and
girls spoke about their table’s views to the whole group and the teachers of
was a hugely enjoyable and splendid night in which the discussions were
first-rate; I particularly enjoyed our discussion on whether we should remain
in the EU. Many thanks should go to Miss Gregory and Dr Hughes for organising
this absolutely fantastic night and to the girls. It was an absolute pleasure
to be present at this five-star dinner.
