About 80 high school students from around the city met at the University of King’s College in Halifax for a unique symposium to discuss weighty issues and the "role of consequence" in our everyday lives.
The first annual Armbrae Dialogue at King’s is a joint effort by Armbrae, a Halifax private school, and the university. The goal is to bring together three high school students from each school (public and private) within an hour’s drive of the city to participate in guided round-table discussions on social justice issues. Each student had to write an essay on a topic that was important to them.
Sixteen schools are participating — five independents and 11 public.
The inaugural theme is The Nature and Role of Consequence in Human Affairs: From the Garden of Eden to the Kyoto Accord. Organizer and Armbrae teacher John Stone believes students are more than up to the challenge.
