Debating Day

Enrichment Fortnight 2019

We take debating and public speaking very seriously for all our pupils. This is their chance to debate issues that are occupying the minds of citizens, politicians, scientists and academics.

01

Two teams go head-to-head, debating for and against a given proposition or motion.

02

Each pupil has two minutes to a convincing argument.

03

Pupils learn to think on their feet, to adapt and respond
effectively to their opponents’ arguments. 

04

Public speaking can be nerve wracking…

05

but it gets easier with practice and preparation.
