Debate Mate Competition
Despite our students losing their first round in the recent Debate Mate competition, they came back fighting and went on to win their next round of debates.
We had a novice team (Eleanor, Rahma, Sharmarke, Yusef and Azale) and they did very well! It was great to see Atiyyah and Amran (Year 11) taking on mentoring roles as they supported the students during planning for their talk.
The other team (Yasmin, Mo, Kacey and Zainab) worked together for the first time this year. Again, they showed that they were strong contenders with valid points and style in delivery.
It was also great to see Year 9 girls Ruby, Aryna and Beth watching the competition in support of the students.
