Inter-School Debating Competition
On January 31st the Heaton St Barnabas’ debating team visited Saltaire Primary School to take part in our first inter-school debating competition of the year. The motion was “Education should be an all year round activity (including holidays)”. This was a tough one to argue but we worked as a team and successfully argued for the motion against Rainbow Primary School.
It was great to have won this debate as a team and some of us even won ‘spot prizes’ for our clear speaking voices, strong arguments and confidence. Well done, debate club!
This is our concluding statement to our arguments: Education does not just mean you are stuck in school – education includes clubs and outdoor education programmes too. Education shapes our lives, shapes our futures and shapes us as people. Education is fun!
