Use your mind to think about what’s in your mind by taking part in a philosophy session with educational charity The Philosophy Foundation.

  • Session 1 (ages 5-7): 10.30am – 11.30am
  • Session 2 (ages 8-10): 11.45am – 12.45am

This session explores the theme of fairness.

“It’s not fair!” This is something we hear all the time, and not just from children. What does it mean? Fair share? Equal treatment? Or is it getting what you want? And is it possible for things to always be fair?

Another thing we often hear is “Life’s not fair!” Is this true? Should it be? To what extend can we control how fair life is?

These are just some of the questions that we may explore with both groups (5-7 and 8-10), albeit in slightly different ways. By questioning fairness, is it fair of us to do so?
