Year 9 Debating
The Year 9 debating team competed in their first short prep debate last night against Stuartholme.
They received their topic one hour (yes one hour) before they had to speak.
The topic was 'that we should have a four day work and school week' and we were arguing the negative.
Our boys Phoenix, Harry & Gabe spoke well and brought up some good points about loss of productivity and loss of income for struggling families, plus the very true fact that students need a professional teacher, someone with real expertise, to help them with their school work. They challenged how could students possibly get this expertise without seeing their teachers five days a week?
Well fought, but alas, no win. Please give encouragement to the team.
