Welcome to Dorset Humanists

Dorset Humanists is a welcoming group for humanists, atheists and agnostics who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. We meet in Bournemouth for informative and enjoyable presentations, debates and discussions on a wide range of subjects including ethics, science, religion, philosophy, politics, our environment and much more. We also organise regular social events.

The Campaign Against Faith Schools

Saturday, 14th January 2.00pmFaith School Poster

Moordown Community Centre, Coronation Avenue, Moordown, Bournemouth. BH9 1TW

Is it really the job of publicly funded schools to instil their parents’ religious beliefs in children?

In the words of Ariane Sherine, “Children should be free to grow up in a world where they are allowed to question, doubt, think freely, and reach their own conclusions about what they believe” 

In this presentation, the British Humanist Association's (BHA) Education Campaigner, Richy Thompson explains why faith schools are ‘unnecessary, discriminatory and divisive’. He will also provide us with a progress update on the BHA's continuing campaign against faith schools.

Everyone welcome! 

Free entry (donations appreciated)
