Philosophy & Theology
Kate is drawn to life’s big questions, which is why she aims to learn as many different perspectives and ideologies as possible during her studies in Philosophy and Theology at the University of Oxford. “Lately I’ve been contemplating the idea of: why there is something instead of nothing,” she explains. “It intrigues me because there are both scientific and philosophical roots behind this thought that go back thousands of years. The fact that there are no answers is very appealing to me.” Starting at Havergal in Junior Kindergarten, Kate explored her interests by joining a variety of athletic teams, clubs and community initiatives, including being a House Mentor to Grade 6 students, taking families on school tours as an Ambassador and building community in the Big Sister Little Sister and Haverbuddies programs. “Havergal is a very supportive and empowering place to learn where everyone feels important and valued in their own way,” she explains. Her goal is to one day teach and inspire others to love thinking philosophically as much as she does.
