Curious Question of the Week: If God Exists, Why is There So Much Evil in the World

ReligionOur Curious Question this week: If God exists, why is there so much evil in the world.


Our How Curious Are You? competition encourages students to be curious outside of lessons too.

Every Monday a curious question is released via social media and students have all week to think about the question and submit a response to the ‘curious box’ in the library. On Friday, student leaders read these responses and select the winning entries.

Participating in this competition encourages students to display our learning behaviours such as being curious about learning, thinking hard and showing scholarly behaviours outside of lessons. That's why all entries receive 5 BBB points (see Rewards and Praise page).


Curious Questions from previous weeks:

Selfie 4248870 960 720Is a selfie art? Lots of students contemplated the amount of effort put in as a marker of whether it was art. Our winning answer from Kloe, Year 9, argued a selfie is art as long as preparation was made with regards to lighting and editing. We really liked her argument that "If it is a picture you took for memory, with friends or family, then it is art". Well done Kloe, for such a curious answer!


What is a Black Hole? We received an array of interesting answers but our winning answer was from Rohan, who gave a very scientific and technical answer explaining in depth exactly what a black hole was and how it was formed. We also really enjoyed his labeled diagram. Well done, Rohan!


Different Languages 660x437If you were going to invent a language for the whole world to speak, where would you start?

The winner, Neville, promoted an inclusive language that should be simple and easy to learn for everyone. We love his idea that 'all countries should be able to speak the same language' and we wonder what impact this would have on the world. Read Neville's answer.


Bayeux Tapestry scene57 Harold deathIf William had not won the Battle of Hastings in 1066, how different would England be today?

Last week's curious question asked students to consider the impact that William the Conqueror had on England. All answers submitted were really thoughtful and demonstrated a real sense of curiosity. Well done to Carmen for the winning entry. She wrote a very detailed and thoughtful answer where she considered that if William the Conqueror had not won the Battle of Hastings, then the United Kingdom may not even exist, we would have a different royal family today and some of our most famous landmarks, such as the Tower of London, would never have been built. You can see Carmen's answer below. Well done, Carmen!
