St James Independent School

Shelley Lewis, daughter of St. James’ benefactor and ex-governor, Brian Lewis, was welcomed to the school in October. She wanted to talk to the pupils about philosophy. Shelley has recently founded a new boutique publishing company for children called Chocolate Sauce. Her company philosophy promotes the importance of looking within to find fulfillment and meaning in one’s life, and the books she publishes are designed to nourish the soul, brighten the spirit, waken the mind, and warm the heart. 

She was very interested to hear the children’s thoughts on philosophy and asked to return to St. James to make a video of their conversations. The children enjoyed meeting her and reading the books published by her company, which she has donated to the school.
