Up for Debate Competition

On Tuesday 27th March, Mrs Atkin-Nash took six Year 9 Students to the Up for Debate competition at Blessed Thomas Holford School in Altrincham.

On Tuesday 27th March, Mrs Atkin-Nash took six Year 9 Students to the Up for Debate competition at Blessed Thomas Holford School in Altrincham.

There were 30 schools in the competition, from all over the North-West. Some school teams had been debating competetively for years, and for others (like us) it was their first competition.

In their first debate, the team came up against a seasoned group of debaters. Although they gave it their all and held their own, they were defeated by experience on this occasion. They didn't let it knock their confidence though, and they went on to win the next two debates comfortably!

It was a really interesting and informative day, with lots of tips and advice for future competitions. 

The girls worked really hard to prepare for the competition, and it paid off on the day; they are all keen to continue with debating.

Team:

Alisha Costello, Abbie Eccleston, Olivia Dillon, Kira Lloyd, Brogan Halliwell, Emma Dootson.
