RS As Conference
On Monday, 20 March, a hundred and eighty pupils and staff from 10 different schools, gathered together at The Village Hotel in Whitchurch for an A level conference led by the prestigious Dr Greg Barker.
Pupils travelled from the Vale, Caerphilly, Cardiff and even as far Haverfordwest in order to spend the day revising in preparation for their forthcoming exams.
Dr Barker kept everyone on their toes as he took us through a host of Philosophical and Ethical theories including: Utilitarianism, Divine Command Theory, Theodicy, Challenges to Religious Experience, and Ethical Egoism. All of which form part of the brand new WJEC A Level Religious Studies.
Pupils and staff were looked after extremely well at The Village Hotel where the conference took place in the aptly named 'Inspiration Suite'.
The day ended with a useful session on study skills and points to remember when preparing for exams. Delegates left with plenty of handouts all prepared by Dr Barker.
All feedback has been most positive and staff are keen for the event to become an annual event.
