Last week, Laurie from Year 6 and Laurie and Rhys from Year 5 took part in the ‘Let’s Debate’ Prep Schools’ Debating Competition at Oratory School. After taking part in morning workshops focussing on public speaking and debating skills, they then were given a motion and prepared their speeches in the Library at Oratory. Competing against 11 other schools from across the South East, they proposed the motion ‘This House believes that living in the countryside is preferable to living in a city’. The team acquitted themselves very well during the tournament, and were very highly commended by judges, with a team from Caldicott School being the eventual victors.
