Philosophy/Construction over Pizza

21 September @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$5 – $10

Please join us for COP/POP  2019.

When: 5 to 7pm, Saturday 21st September, 2019
Where: Mt Albert Presbyterian Church, 14 Mt Albert Rd
Cost: $7 per Value Range pizza per member child or adult / $12 per pizza per nonmember child or adult
*Please note we use Domino’s pizza and they have increased the priced of their value range such that each pizza is between $5-$6. To keep it simple please pay $7 per Value Range pizza.
The Hall we use costs $75 per session to hire so up till now there has been no contribution from POP/COP to this hall hireage so the increased cost provides some offset to the hall hireage, it is still heavily subsidised by your membership fee.
If you order a non Value Range pizza please add $2 per pizza to the amount you deposit.

Pay to: Account 12-3027-0291833-01 with your family name and the activity name as your reference.
Please pay online by Thursday night prior to the even to ensure there is time for payment to clear so that the Pizza order can be placed online in plenty of time for Saturday night.

We have three groups running at this session currently: Senior POP (11+), Structured POP (9+) and Construction ie COP

Senior POP, or Philosophy over Pizza, is aimed at older students (11+) who want to do more than “hang out” on a Saturday evening. These are very free flowing sessions, parents tend to leave the group to it. The group is facilitated by a University student.

We meet together to share pizza and discuss the “BIG ISSUES” but, more importantly, we learn how to discuss any issue. We might discuss : “what do I mean when I say something is real?”, “when I say, we know this is true, how can I be sure that it is true?”, “does intuition have anything to do with logic?”, “what does it mean if I say, this thing is beautiful?”

Structured POP group (recommended minimum age 9) – facilitated by Explorers parents/educators. This is a more structured session and parents are welcome, in fact encouraged to sit in.

COP, or Construction over Pizza, is a loosely guided construction activity using one of Explorers’ many construction sets. What will it be next?
Suitable for age 9+

All this and pizza too!

Please note the cost of $7 is to cover the cost of the pizza which is the value range from the local Domino’s. So you pay the amount that reflects the number of pizzas you order. To keep it simple we encourage ordering of the value range only. If you order another pizza eg gluten free or vegan please add $2 on per pizza to contribute to hall hireage costs.
