Year 7 Debate

Last week saw the final debate in this year’s school calendar – and what a corker it was! Year 7 were contesting the motion, ‘This house believes every child should experience life in a different country’, with strong arguments put forward by both sides. Well done to all the pupils who took part and a special mention to guest speakers, Maraya and Pelayo, who spoke beautifully about their experiences as EAL pupils at Perrott Hill. “When I first arrived, my heart was thumping and I was worried I would understand nothing,” said Maraya. “Now I am in my final term and I have achieved so much. I’ve made great progress in English and, most importantly, made some amazing friends! I think anyone who has the opportunity to live in a different country should take it – it will be the best year of your life.” What lovely words.
