Café Philosophie is an initiative by The Outreach Group from Fountainhall Church, in association with Ashley & Broomhill Community Council (ABCC) and Queen's Cross & Harlaw Community Council (QXHCC).
The idea behind Café Philosophie is to provide an opportunity for S5/S6 pupils from local schools to attend free talks that would take place once a month. These sessions will provide pupils with the opportunity to extend their understanding on certain topics/issues which may or may not have been discussed in school but which would benefit from more time to reflect and broaden awareness and understanding. Lecturers from universities and experts from businesses or organisations will talk to pupils about their current research and thoughts on a particular subject followed by the opportunity to ask questions and discuss in small groups. Participants from secondary schools in the area will be invited to attend. Drinks and light bites are provided during the sessions and will be run by volunteers from The Outreach Group at Fountainhall Church and the Community Councils. Sessions are aimed at S5/S6 pupils and need to be booked via the schools.
