The Junior Debating Club welcomes pupils from Years 8-10 where we debate and discuss a wide range of topics from the serious to the light-hearted. The club gives pupils an opportunity to develop their listening, questioning and persuasive skills. We have debated whether or not electronic devices should be used in the classroom for educational purposes: that pop stars are poor role models: and, interestingly, that school punishments don’t work!
