Inter Schools discussion group

The Inter-Schools Discussion Group, which flourished for a short time at the beginning of 1944, has been revived this year thanks mainly to the enthusiasm of one or two members of the original group. Membership is open to the upper forms of boys' and girls' secondary schools in Walthamstow and Leyton, and meetings are held about once every three weeks.
Discussions have been held on various subjects, such as the prevention of war, democratic government, housing, the B.B.C. monopoly and full employment. At the time of going to press, further meetings are being arranged on the place of the Church in the world to-day, and the future treatment of Germany. The subjects for discussion are chosen by vote, and each of them is led by a member of the Group. No attempt is made to reach definite conclusions: we are more interested in the exchange of ideas.
