Description of the 9:30 presentation: Tom Farquhar is Head of Sidwell Friends School. Since George Fox called for the establishment of schools to teach boys and girls “everything civil and useful in creation,” Friends have felt called to participate actively in education. Our beliefs and testimonies give rise to educational practices that encourage a climate of purposeful activity in classrooms and schools, where all children are respected and valued, and where “way opens” for learning and growth.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO REGISTER IN ADVANCE. This will help us in planning for meals and setting up activities. Please contact Joli McCathran at (301) 774-9792 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please tell Joli the number of potential attenders and any minor children coming and their ages. There will be songs and games for children of all ages!
