BYRON Sophia Philosophical Group. Sophia goes to school. Can timeless wisdom inform and enhance the way we teach children today? Do young minds benefit from free expression and self-government? Might a revolutionary school, founded more than a century ago, have a vital role to play in a world where leadership, creativity and open-minded principles are seemingly in short supply? Keith Howes, theosophical lecturer looks at a once scandalous, but still flourishing school where he was a pupil, and reveals its success in separating liberty from licence, punishment and discipline from self-control and justice, and truth from convention. To be held today, Thursday (September 22) from 1-3pm at the Masonic Centre, 6 Byron St. Byron Bay. For more information, phone Celia on 66843623.
