Silviculture, Dalriada’s philosophical society, is a forum for discussion and reflection. It began many years ago as an entirely pupil-led group and last week a very special former pupil was our guest speaker. Lynn Finnegan, a former Head Girl, came in to begin a discussion on materialism and the amazing experiences she has had around the world, from working in the UN to living with aborigines in Australia, seeking to support them in their progress towards reclaiming their land rights. It is not an understatement to say that it was an inspiring lunchtime and one of the very best Silviculture experiences to date. Thanks, Lynn!
