Hi Tom Just want to say I'm glad you got unconditional apologies from two teachers. Shame about the other five - their shame. Its also a shame that there is no organisational acknowledgement of this lack of co-operation - perhaps because that would mean they would have to take responsibilty for the ...

Case study from John Scottus added to Ir.Independent website

Article in Irish national newspaper on John Scottus School

Hi there Here's a link to an article in an Irish national newspaper: http://www.independent.ie/health/big-issues-little-people-1038120.html What do you make of the claims made that: "Advocates of a philosophy-based education system say it leads to grounded and well-rounded students, while other...

Well, we disagree in a good number of ways so! I think the flavour of MacLaren in the SES sours all their methods and teachings but without MacLaren there would be no SES. However, I think I understand where you are coming from a bit better - thanks for explaining. If we don't correspond again - hav...

Hi, Anti-ses, you sure are sparky! - Matthew didn't suggest you leave the board and I realised over-night that there are some things that I would question in what you posted but yesterday, i said "fair enough" because I had noticed that you seem to tend to react by using attack as defence ...

Hiya anti_ses I accept what you are saying - fair enough - the thing is though, that atheists and non-believers are also entitled to their views that any spiritual practice is utter nonsense - when it comes to the cultural stuff I agree that caution is usually wiser alright as its easy to be ignoran...

Hey Tom, I was going to suggest a Desmond Dekker "israelites" and MacLaren "o thou lord supreme" mash-up and not wanting to embarass myself by getting the meaning of mash-up wrong (age-related ignorance) I googled its meaning and get this definition: "An audio recording that...

Mine wasn't a straw man argument - it was a genuine question. Do hindus teach "the perfect etc" verse to their children. Do hindus teach their children to sit still for long periods of time. If you don't like me questionning your assumption that the practice taught by the SES are bona fide...

Hi anti-ses - I didn't get from your piece that you were defending the SES at all. However, is it not quite a jump to assume that the teaching of the "This is perfect etc" verse and teaching sitting still for long periods of time to very young children, is a bona fide Hindu practice? Do Hi...

Hi - thanks for that - what i meant about asking is it Hindu is that while apparently some of the structures of its main beliefs seem to accord with hindu philosophy alright but it seems there's a heap of other stuff thrown in (TM, remnants of Blavatsky etc) add in a large portion of McLaren's perso...

And can you be sure that the SES system is predominantly Hindu? I have some experience of studying with and about different religious systems and from what i've heard here and read about its history it appears to be a hotch potch (or synthesis if I want to be nice) of the different influences on and...

Thanks Tom for posting that - as someone who has removed my son from the John Scottus school in Dublin this year, I can relate to almost every part of that letter from the parent with the child in the School of Economic Science school in Australia. Since he's moved to a local school I feel I have go...

I shall be very careful to try and stick to the point! As someone who is on the periphary and not so centrally involved as you guys, I do sometimes feel I've to be a bit more careful not to go off on meanderings and to be careful about what I say and I do apologise when I'm a little off the mark. Al...

That’s fair enough concerned-parent. I too really don’t want to get in the way of anyone’s reconciliation process and I'm happy for people who found peace about it. However I think this board has a wider purpose and frankly given my experiences of John Scottus school here in Dublin in the last...
