Psychology Conference at The Marches School
On Monday 13th February Years 12 and 13 students from six local schools will be attending a Psychology Conference at The Marches School from 9.00 am – 13.30 pm.
Over 120 Students from Ellesmere College, North Shropshire College, Thomas Adams School, Sir John Talbot’s School and Oswestry School will be attending along with representatives from Aberystwyth University, Wrexham Glyndwr University, University of Chester, University of Chester in Shrewsbury, Liverpool Hope University and Cardiff University who will be delivering a wide range of psychology based workshops and presentations.
With A Level exams fast approaching the conference will provide well timed and thought provoking revision for Year 13 whilst allowing Year 12 to not only further their psychology subject knowledge, but to find out more about the many excellent universities locally. Workshops will include; ‘Lego, Group process and Social Influence’, ‘Applied Psychology’ and ’Introversion and Extroversion’, . Each student will be able to attend four workshops and there will be time during breaks to interact with the workshop leaders.
Dr Julie Leoni, Psychology Teacher at The Marches School commented, “Our vision for the conference is to create a centre of excellence for psychology in Oswestry. Our school is lucky enough to have outstanding training facilities and it is a pleasure to bring together staff and students from local schools to develop their knowledge of psychology. We want to develop a community of psychology professionals and enthusiasts as we believe that psychology is not only an A Level subject, but a tool which can help us all develop our relationships, our mental health and our potential as human beings and nothing can be more important than that”.
