Debating Society

The 7th November saw our debating club get together to put forward their views in a Hillary vs Trump debate! Views were strong and arguments stronger as they took centre stage for the long awaited and topical debate.

The guys had all clearly done their homework and even those who were presenting something they may not have actually agreed with, put forward a great case.

After lots of good-natured banter the judges  finally decided that Hillary was the winning candidate!

Will reality match our outcome? Let’s wait and see.

The first meeting of our brand new Debating Society took place on Monday 17th October.

For our first meeting, and to introduce pupils to the idea of arguing their case, we held a Balloon Debate. Pupils were all randomly given a famous person as their character and had to argue why they should be the one to remain in the hot air balloon!

A lot of laughter, interesting arguments and fun facts led to the survivor being Adolf  Hitler! Well done Alana Cahoon!

The next debate will be on Monday 7th November. Pupils voted and the topic is Trump V Hillary. It will follow the line of a more formal debate and will of course be followed on the 8th by the election results!

‘THIS HOUSE BELIEVES THAT DONALD TRUMP IS A BETTER CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES THAN HILLARY CLINTON’…….

SHOULD BE INTERESTING!
