Here at Fyling Hall, our after school clubs are getting exciting! This term, we have introduced three new clubs –debating, philosophy and bee-keeping.

In Philosophy Club, students tackle the big questions of morality and human nature and its purpose to make us more critical in our thinking – something that will help us to become better pupils.

We only started a few weeks ago, but we have already had a visiting speaker attend. This week Rev Simon from the local church helped us to discuss the question: “Is killing ever acceptable?”

In Debating Club, students also flex their thinking muscles. Students argue over issues of progress, society and politics.

I’m running that one personally so I’m slightly biased in saying that Wednesday has become my favourite day of the week.

Then there’s bee-keeping club - it’s fun, it’s different - as long as you’re not allergic that is. Basically bee-keeping club is about… keeping bees.

Students will learn how to look after a colony of bees, catch swarms, treat them against diseases and of course extract honey.

This will take place in our very own Rose Garden, where the hives are housed.

Exciting times for Fyling Hall students!
