Year 9 Debate

Year 9 Debate

19th June 2019 in Academic

On Wednesday 19th June, all of Year 9 participated in a rigorous debate discussing the motion that 'Reality TV does more harm than good.'

We had four proponents and four opponents battling it out in fierce rhetoric with impressive opening arguments, relentless interrogation from the judges and insightful questions from the audience. After lengthy deliberation, our judges - VP Mrs Cochrane and HOY Mr King - decided that the proponents won. Special mention goes out to our top debaters Toby Anthony (9RL) and David Heasley (9SH).

It appears this house believes that we should all switch off Love Island and continue debating!
