Prep School

Theology and Philosophy

In Theology and Philosophy Year 8 have studied the history and diaspora of the Jewish people, including the Holocaust and antisemitism. They then went on to learn about the creation of the Israeli nation state and the difficult relationship with the Palestinians. Appreciating the non-binary complexity of any conflict and the need for empathy and consideration of other peoples’ views and situation were key aspects of discussion. They are currently studying the origins, pillars and philosophy of Islam, in the context of both secular society and geopolitics.
