Oxford Union Schools Debating Competition
On Wednesday 15 January, Victor, Abhinaba, Matthew, Amreet, Anikit and Sian of Lower 6th competed in the prestigious Oxford Union Schools Debating Competition, this year hosted by Howell’s School, Llandaff. After each motion was announced, the teams were assigned different roles within the debate and given 15 minutes to prepare for each motion. The motions were certainly challenging, and the judges commented that the standard of debating was particularly high this year. Our students acquitted themselves very well against teams comprising mostly Upper 6th students, and were consistently praised for their clear speech structures and astute points of information. Congratulations to all involved.
Mr J. Neville.
