Welcome to the fifth issue of the Journal of Philosophy in Schools (JPS). In April this year the Federation of Australasian Philosophy in Schools Associations (FAPSA) held its biennial conference in Wellington, New Zealand. Organised by the then Chairperson of FAPSA, Dr Vanya Kovach, the conference was a great success and attracted many teachers as well as local and international academics working in the fields of Philosophy, Education, and Philosophy of Education. The two-day conference was supplemented by an ‘Action Day’ that saw contributing academics and practitioners facilitating Communities of Inquiry and P4C activities with students from local primary and high schools. The opportunity to listen to theoretical papers and then witness examples of praxis was a wonderful representation of the two arms of the Philosophy in Schools beast that we celebrate here at the JPS. In this issue, we are delighted to bring you five original articles that were initially presented as papers at the FAPSA conference, along with a book review.
