Re: Art in Action

I went to Art in Action this year for the first time in about 8+ years and having got past the, in some places very overt, religious aspect, it was actually quite a fun day! The art definitely isn't 'the best', but then I'm happy to spend a wet afternoon wandering around a little art gallery and tha...

Keir, from my fading memory of a course on journalism law, I am pretty certain you've published something as soon as someone else reads or hears it. The damage to the person's reputation is determined by who and how many read/ hears it. People have defences from being sued if giving evidence in cour...

Sorry, just read the ADG's initial list and cannot stop laughing. I feel a bit bad because these beliefs have fucked up some people's lives, but when you read it like that, the sheer ridiculousness comes across in all its glory! Erik, your Mcexperience sounds true for the UK too. Stopping at a servi...

Must admit I went to an SES/ St James sponsored event last month, won't say what, I'll lose any credibility I have on this site! Suffice to say, the evening was crap. Anyway, turns out quite a few SES people and St James apologists keep an eye on the forum. The lurkers could be them. The fact that s...

Hi Michael, Part of the reason I started this thread is I felt there must have been other people going through the kind of crap you've had to put up with. There's a certain irony in SES demanding we lie in order to stay involved! I'm really sorry they've put you through the usual blackmail of saying...

Maybe I'm just being a bit touchy, but I feel the bit which suggests ex-pupils who had a nice happy time at St James also write in is a bit cheeky. I get the feeling their comments are almost considered as valid as ours. Surely the handful of people who got something out of St James can tell the sch...

Us gay folk...

I don't know if this has been discussed elsewhere but I'd be interested in other people's views and experiences on SES and the day schools' approach to homosexuality. :Fade-color I left SES last year primarily because, while I agree with some of its principles, I was fed up with having to hide my se...

Alban, that's a really interesting thought. I must admit I nearly committed suicide four years ago, although mostly because of family problems indirectly contributed to by SES. I did once talk about suffering from depression on an SES week and was amazed at the number of people who quietly came up t...

Sorry, Mark Broadwith not vindictive?!!! The man was awful. He had such a set mindset about the kind of person you should be and if you failed to conform he bullied pupils horribly. For my sins I was/am fairly quiet and shy so what did that future headmaster do? Humiliation techniques. For several d...
