Magis Carnival

The Magis Carnival is being held at John XXIII College on Thursday 22 June. The event will involve six Newman College high-achieving Religious Education students from Year 12 and around 80 other Year 11 and 12 students, from a number of Catholic schools. During the carnival, students will examine complex problems from our world and beyond. These ideas have a spiritual dimension or a philosophical connection to the religious underpinning of our College. This will give students the opportunity to discuss and argue through their thoughts and ideas in relation to specific topics including:

  • Caring about the environment is a first world luxury.

  • The Law needs to recognise human rights and the fundamental interdependence of all biological (and some biological) entities and their essential diversity.

  • Agriculture is a mechanised food industry divorced from nature.

  • Thinking is impossible without any form of language.

The evening should provide the students involved with a worthwhile intellectual challenge and the chance to meet other like-minded young people.
