Yesterday’s debate was really interesting.
Atherstone Year 10 girls debated against Wilton Year 10 girls on the top of “Do students benefit from segregation?”
Despite some initial nerves, once they got going they really did debate with vigour. Their points were very well supported ranging from the use of statistical evidence, bible quotes and even an anecdote from the biography of Douglas Bader.
A panel of Year 12 Atherstone ‘judges’ gave useful feedback. Who won? Ask one of the girls in Year 10!
