Our debaters have had a stellar week. The ESU Mace squad of Vicky, VII, and Kitty, Abby & Creagh, VI, reached the finals of the ESU Mace prepared debate competition, placing them in the top 12 teams in the country. They successfully argued to retain the House of Lords against the passionate case for democracy advanced by South Hampstead HS. At UCL, four of our teams came in the top seven in a strong field. Kitty & Abby topped the qualifying, with Kitty awarded best speaker and Abby fourth. New team combinations worked well as Alex, VI, and Kiersten, V, also reached the gold final, while Maya, LV, and Christina, V, just won the silver final from Kohana, VIII, and Anya, V, on a motion to deprive Aung San Suu Kyi of her Nobel Peace Prize. Congratulations to all competitors.
