Debate Team named District Winners
On Saturday 26 March, Ellie M, Sienna H and Georgia D were named winners of the Rotary Senior Youth Debate Competition’s District Finals. Their prize was £50 each and they will go on to compete in the Regional Finals on 23 April.
The team were required to speak for 15 minutes on the topic ‘THBT the institution of marriage in outdated’ and they faced fierce competition from St Joseph’s College, Ipswich and The Perse.
Head of English, Miss Garrett, commented: “The girls delivered their arguments with eloquence, intelligence and humour. They were commended on their rapport with one another, and their success is testament to their hard work and practise. They are now very excited to compete in the Regional Finals in Stamford and we wish them the best of luck.”
