Svara P Highly Commended by Judges at ISRA Essay Competition

Earlier this term five Third Year pupils, Gia A, Svara P, Inaaya K, Bonnie E-S and Aimee L entered the highly prestigious ISRA Theology Philosophy and Religion Essay Competition. The competition sees hundreds of entries from schools across the UK, with pupils submitting an independently crafted response to a choice of three questions:

  • Theology – ‘Even though Jesus’ disciples were failures, they are still good role models for us.’ Do you agree?
  • Philosophy – ‘Everywhere in the world we observe order and purpose, therefore God must exist.’ Do you agree?
  • Religion – ‘Religion is not about having beliefs; it is about doing.’ Do you agree?

All of the girls’ submissions were highly impressive but a particular shout out must go to Svara P whose essay has just been awarded ‘highly commended’ by the panel. After examining both sides of the argument, Svara concluded; ‘the intricate balance of natural systems, the complexity of life, and the precise conditions necessary for existence all suggest the presence of an intelligent designer guiding these processes which go beyond scientific justification.’ This is a truly fantastic achievement – well done Svara!
