TED is an organisation that encourages us to share good ideas and promotes a love of learning, discussion and thought. Last week 5 brave teachers took to the stage to present their own TED style talks to the students. Subjects included ‘The importance of being Idle’, ‘Feminism is NOT a dirty word’, and ‘Embracing adventure’. It was great to see so many students embracing new ideas and seeing a different side to their teachers.
Students will be giving their own TEDx talks in the new year and the school will be holding an official TEDxYouth conference in March.
