Registered Philosothons have right of entry to the Australasian Philosothon. Schools that are

What is a Philosothon?
Philosothons are annual events
that have been run in all Australian
states and territories of Australia
and throughout the UK. Research
has shown that the development
of skills often flows through into
learning outcomes in other school
subjects as diverse as English
expression, Mathematics and the
physical sciences. Amongst
students from disadvantaged
backgrounds, the program has
also seen significant
improvements in student
attendance rates and aspiration
levels across genders and cultural
divides .
