The Daily Telegraph has, this week, published an article by Kevin Donnelly which discusses the importance of Western Culture, and its contribution to Education. Dr. Donnelly cited Campion College as an example of the success and vitality of this educational approach. Campion’s Liberal Arts Education stands in the Western Tradition, and provides a well-rounded education based on this traditional model.
Dr. Donnelly said: “Sydney’s Campion College is an example of how Western culture has also developed a unique approach to education, which also explains why it is so successful. The purpose of education, instead of being utilitarian or promoting self-interest, is committed to knowledge, wisdom, and truth.”
Campion was privileged to have Dr. Kevin Donnelly speak at the annual St. Edmund Campion Dinner this year. The dinner is the final Formal Hall of the first semester, and celebrates the end of the academic period, along with our patron St. Edmund Campion.
