On Wednesday, we welcomed 54 girls from Sydenham High Junior School for a morning of debating with our Year 5s. The boys and girls either proposed or opposed the motions of whether the monarchy should be abolished or whether the money spent on space exploration is worth it. Most groups formulated strong, convincing arguments and verbalised their points in a clear and persuasive manner. Overall it was a valuable experience for the boys and will hopefully be the catalyst for more debating opportunities in the future.
