PiXL Up for Debate Competition
After months of preparation our year 9 Debate Team (consisting of Emma, Gracie, Summer and Emily) represented the school in the regional heats of the PiXL Up for Debate competition hosted at Alleyn’s School, Dulwich recently.
Connor (Year 10) helped the year 9s with their debates prior to the competition and acted as a student judge on the day, shadowing professionals.
The team did themselves and the school proud competing against some of the best debating schools in the country. Their confidence improved with each round as they were asked to debate on some complex and mature topics against difficult opposition.
The team held their own throughout the day and showcased their skills in three separate debates. Well done to all involved, it was a pleasure to be a part of.
