Philosophy, Religion & Ethics Essay Challenge

In Philosophy and Religious Ethics this half term, we challenged pupils in Year’s 7,8 and 9 to respond to a challenging philosophical problem around the concept of evil and suffering. We asked students “Does the existence of suffering in the world mean that God does not exist?”

We had a good number of entries across the year groups but in the end, three outstanding students were selected as our top philosophers. Second and Third place went to two students in Year 9 who wrote passionately about the subject, but our star philosopher was Elena  in Year 7. She researched several different philosophical views about evil and suffering and answered the question by evaluating different viewpoints, demonstrating an in-depth understanding of this complex issue.

Elena won a large bag of sweets and a limited edition of the novel ‘Sophie’s World’ which explores the history and development of philosophy through the eyes of Sophie, a young girl living in England.

Well done to all of those who entered and a special well done to our top three winners.
