Humanities Week 2019

How would you make the world a better place? How did the Soviet-Afghan War affect the price of gold? Is the population of France larger than the population of Japan? Humanities Week has been about the big questions and provoking thought in both the discrete disciplines and the overarching connections in our faculty.

Our Secondary students used their general knowledge every break time to try to identify states, famous faces, and national flags and they quickly racked up some serious house points by completing a fiendish series of daily quizzes. Lunchtimes embraced both the collaborative and competitive spirit of our students. We saw who could think the quickest and sustain this focus by being the last one standing in our ‘Winner Stays On’ and ‘Higher or Lower’ challenges. Crowds gathered in the Atrium to hear ideas being shared regarding how we could make the world a better place. Engaging talks were thoughtfully prepared and delivered. A variety of diverse themes were discussed, including eating less meat and training everybody in First Aid.

All this unfolded against the backdrop of our Humanities Week Trade Game where students bought and sold commodities daily. Tumultuous market forces from the worlds of History, Geography, Business, and Economics wreaked havoc on seemingly wise investments. However, some houses prevailed in the chaos of rapidly changing circumstances to emerge somehow in profit!

Here’s to our next Humanities Week in our ever changing world.
