Sixth Formers attend Debating Conference

On the Friday before half-term, Lower Sixth students spoke articulately, and with eloquence, at a conference at Southampton Civic Centre. The group discussed the role of the United Nations in today’s society, drawing on its history and its current effectiveness, against Bitterne Park School. The four speakers were excellent, remaining composed during some tricky subjects. Everyone also received a tour of the Mayor’s Office that included a brief history of the Centre in Southampton. It is hoped that the conference will become an annual event and on a bigger scale in the future.
