2020IdealMini

The Simon Fraser University Burnaby campus saw an early flurry of activity one Saturday morning at the end of February as teams of high school students from across the Lower Mainland took part in the second BC Ethics Bowl. Organised by the Department of Philosophy, Grade 11 and 12 students spent the day in collaborative dialogue, putting critical thinking—one of the BC curriculum’s core competencies—into action.

Directed by SFU Philosophy professor, Nic Fillion and undergraduate student, Kendra Wong, 10 teams followed a Swiss Pairing system  to face off against each other. Following five close rounds of ethical debate, the team from Ideal Mini School emerged victorious, with Fraser Heights team 2 coming runner up. Both qualified for the Canadian High School Ethics Bowl finals in Winnipeg late April.
