The Philosothon is a program designed to develop the ability of students to critically analyse ideas and concepts, improve skills in argumentation and to collaboratively explore philosophical issues.

The Philosothon has developed a very significant profile over the last few years both nationally and internationally. This is your school’s chance to be involved in a major event directly linked to improving educational outcomes.

The 2020 NSW Philosothon (Sydney) will be held on Saturday 20th June at North Sydney Girls High School as part of the NSW Festival of Philosophy.
