Earlier today, our new Debating Team went on an exciting visit to Manchester University, for this years Debatemate Launch. The pupils got to experience what being a University Student must feel like, as they sat in one of the humongous lecture theatres. The Launch was incredibly exciting, it was loud and raucous, and as well as having a lot of fun, pupils also got to find out exactly what the Debatemate Club entails. A live debate took place, which had the motion "This House Believes All Superheros Should Be Banned," and the children thoroughly enjoyed voting for the winning team. On the coach ride home, the children excitedly discussed how much they can't wait to start debating for themselves next week.
