Portsmouth Point blog celebrates 10th birthday

Ten years ago today, on 7th February, 2012, PGS pupil, Julia Alsop, published the first article on Portsmouth Point blog. Her piece explored the work of the Greek scientist and philosopher, Thales, in the 6th century BCE.

Shortly afterwards, George Neame posted the second blog article, his review of Emeli Sande’s debut album, Our Version of Events, which had only been released the day before.

We went from 4 articles published that February to 45 in March: focusing on a dizzying range of subjects, from a live-blog of Chancellor George Osborne’s Budget to coverage of the racist killing of Trayvon Martin in the USA, war crimes in Syria and Afghanistan, 'hacktivism', the UK 'cash for questions' scandal, and proposals for a third runway at Heathrow, as well as a celebration of mathematical equations as an art form, reviews of poetry, novels, music and films, an investigation of the psychological impact of fashion, a reflection on whether or not Titus Livius was a moral historian, and a farewell to bluegrass legend Earl Scruggs.

Today the 4,357th article is published, celebrating the blog's "Decade of Discussion, Discovery and Diversity".

Why not dive in and see what our pupils and staff are talking about?
