SPEAC and Debating Society Joint Debate

May 18, 2020

This half term SPEAC and Debating Society joined forces for the first time to hold an engaging environmental debate on the topic ‘This House believes that Extinction Rebellion is using the right tactics’. On the Proposition team, Vicky and Courtenay propounded the idea of disruptive rebellion being the most effective tactic, while on Opposition Anya and Chiara argued that these tactics only deter people who could help benefit the movement. After the debate, the question was opened up to the floor and a thorough discussion took place. During remote learning, Madame May, Mr Askew and Mr Stolarski have provided wonderful resources to help students continue to improve their debating skills and this debate was a perfect chance to practise for the online debating competitions coming up next half term.
