Year 6 students attend debating festival

On Wednesday, three of our Year 6 students – Elena, Vali and Rupert – attended the inaugural Dukes Education Debating Festival. We experienced fantastic workshops with Noisy Classroom, who trained the children brilliantly in public speaking and debate, before a knockout competition in the afternoon. The children were all near-novices at the start of the day, but nonetheless scored an incredible 73 points out of 100 in their debate, ‘This house would ban zoos’. Not only that, but Rupert won three medals, awarded for exceptional performance and participation by the various teachers and facilitators. Well done, all – and here’s to winning next year!
