Huish Academy

Visiting University Professor challenges our students in their thinking

Might and Right : Learning from the Past

 

At Huish Episcopi we regularly invite visiting speakers to stimulate and challenge our students in their thinking and experiences.

On 25 May we were pleased to welcome Professor Neville Morley, Professor of Ancient History at Bristol University.

The theme of the conference was Learning from the Past : Might and Right and our students were introduced to the significance of the work of the ancient Greek historian Thucydides.

Following on from this conference a group of Lead Learners will be delving deeper into the importance of the Melian Dialogue and its significance to today's society. We look forward to developing this work over the coming year.
