Should Evolution Facts Be Presented in School Assembly?
« on: January 26, 2016, 08:07:24 AM »
Headguruteacher (TOM SHERRINGTON) starts his article on an Assembly about evolution like this:

“Charles Darwin had a big idea; arguably, the most powerful idea ever.” Richard Dawkins

That’s the quote I used to start my assemblies this week.  To me, it’s the most important and extraordinary story children should know and understand.


Read the rest HERE

Anyone who takes an Assembly should read this. It will either confirm your own beliefs or make you feel very uncomfortable.

Do you agree or disagree with Tom? Tell us what you think below.
Please vote in our poll on whether the facts of evolution should be explained in school Assembly.

It's a great article by Tom. Many of us have not felt brave enough to take on this topic in Assembly because of the backlash we would face from colleagues, parents and children. I guess it is such a fundamental challenge to the beliefs of some that we are frightened of unleashing the anger. Perhaps we are being cowardly. I really welcome Tom sharing his ideas. What does it say about School Assembly if we cannot tell children the truth about what science has discovered?
