Debating Competition

Yesterday evening the CGS team of May M, Olivia T and Rosie HS took part in the first round of the English Speaking Union Mace debating competition at Hele’s School in Plymouth, competing against schools from across Devon and Cornwall.

They were proposing the motion ‘This house would abolish trial by jury’ and debated hugely impressively – particularly given this was their first experience of a formal debate.

I’m delighted to report that they were ranked as the best team by the judge and will now progress to the next round of the competition.
