On Tuesday night, St Helen’s were fortunate enough to host a Latin Thinking Supper including ten Year 9 Radley College students. The topic was ‘How can Latin poetry make you happier?’
After dinner, we opened up the topic to discussion and questions. Many ideas were brought forward and we all learnt the true meaning of ‘carpe diem’, which is indeed ‘pluck the day’ and not ‘seize the day’.
Overall, it was an enlightening evening and was enjoyed by all who participated.
