Geography Society with St Helen's

Geography Society with St Helen's

Radley College and St Helen’s and St Katherine’s ‘Harris Society’ dinner.

The 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.

As 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 both schools.

It 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.
