Debating Success

Debating

Congratulations to S6 pupils, Bryan Watson and Zak Williamson who went through to the second round of the Donald Dewar Law Society Debating competition. This was the first formal debate for both boys and they acquitted themselves very well against more experienced opposition. They argued that monuments to controversial figures should be removed from public places – not an easy topic for either side to argue, but they made their case convincingly.

Mention should be made of Emma Carfrae and Abby Cassidy (both S5) who performed very strongly and were excellent representatives of our school. Although they didn’t go through to round 2 they remain undaunted andy are keen to do it all again as soon as possible!
