Theory of Knowledge Conference: February 2016
For the first time, Wellspring students will be taking part in the Theory of Knowledge (ToK) conference held annually in AUB. We appreciate the efforts of our colleagues at ACS for arranging this event and inviting our participation. The theme of this year’s conference is “Origins of Ethics: Where do Ethics come from?
The conference will open on Thursday 18 February with a keynote address by Father Boulos Wehbe, a senior lecturer at Notre Dame University. This will be held in the Bathish Auditorium, AUB West Hall from 4:30 to 6:00 pm.
On Friday 19 and Saturday 20 February, our Grade 12 students will present their ToK topics; this is the culminating work from the ToK course. Along with the ToK essay, the presentation is assessed according to set criteria. ToK is central to the IB diploma; it is what gives the IB programme its unique and highly respected reputation.
