Magis Carnival 2016

Magis Carnival 2016

On Thursday 24 June, five Year 12 students were invited to attend the 2016 Magis Carnival, hosted by John XXIII College. We were one of six schools to attend, with around 32 students coming together to talk about morals, ethics and philosophy in an informal, non-competitive environment.
Magis is JTC's gifted and talented program, named after the Latin word for 'more', an accurate reflection of the theme of the evening. I was amazed by the sophisticated and complex level of conversation coming from students in Years 11-12, as we discussed topics such as technological dependence, gender roles throughout history, and ethical dilemmas. Some of the questions that we explored asked us to consider whether we are masters or slaves of technology and whether we are morally responsible for poverty.
The evening was a great chance to grow your own understanding of the world and its issues, as well as to meet people and make new friends.
The Carnival was a great night to attend, and I'd personally like to thank our Lumen coordinator, Mr Aaron Richards, and JTC's Magis coordinator for providing us with this great opportunity.
Daniel Litjens, Year 12 student
