We selected 'Evolutionary Ideas' as our theme as we believe it incorporates a focused yet open enough interpretation of the universe.
Global Perspectives - this is an idea that we believe is pivotal to our school community, and one which is becoming ever present in the local community. We would like to include this idea and focus around the nature vs nurture debate. Is a global community still part of the ‘new world’? How do we as humans impact the environment and what can we do about it? How does the media reflect local and global issues?
Technology - with the development of the graphene, do we as humans have anything else to aim for? How can we continue to improve our technology if we have already reached such great heights? Are we too reliant on technology?
Literature - With the world becoming a 'melting pot' how important is literature in ensuring national identity? Does literature provide us with 'true' answers? Are we facing a world where literature is no longer identifiable from a traditional place and only exists in a global perspective? Does literature still serve its purpose by allowing us to make sense of the world around us? Or do we have to seek a new means (such as technology) to do this?
