The Middle Section Public Speaking Competition and Senior Section Debating Competition were held on the last Thursday of term. 

In the Middle Section competition, pupils were invited to give a five minute speech with the title “Has 2017 been a good year?” Well done to Tommy from 6S for winning this competition. The Senior Section competition comprised two debates, one on the legal status of gambling and another on the relative merits of football and rugby. Well done to Alex from 7A, who proposed that all forms of gambling should remain legal, for being the victor in this competition.

Many thanks go to Jon Gabbitas, former Governor and long-time friend of the School, Glynne Butt, current Abingdon Foundation Governor, and Jonah Walker, an Abingdon Prep Old Boy and currently an undergraduate at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, for giving up their afternoons to form the judging panel for the competitions.
