As we are looking at the Value of Service in our school this term I thought it would be good to acknowledge the role of the School of Practical Philosophy this week who are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year.
As you may know John Colet School was founded by members of the School of Practical Philosophy, who as parents were looking for an education for their children that was not available at the time in Sydney. From humble beginnings in North Sydney our school has developed and flourished over the years and provided an excellent education to the many students who have passed through our classes.
We continue to benefit from the philosophy courses available to our parents and staff as well as through the guidance from the members of the School Board who volunteer their time to support the continued success of John Colet School. We give our thanks and congratulations for 50 years of service to the community.
