Year 8 Debate - Perrott Hill

Year 8 Debate

The first debate of the academic year took place recently, with Year 8 pupils debating the motion ‘This House believes that digital devices should replace paper and books in school’. Following some fervid arguments from both sides and questions from the floor, the motion was defeated by 49 votes to 40 – a surprise result and one which left Mr Silk and Mrs Byrne breathing a sigh of relief! We were particularly pleased to have Years 3 and 4 with us and hope it inspired them to get involved when their time comes. Very well done to the speakers (Ellie, Ruby, Oliver, Daisy, Alice and Kai), chair (Harry) and timekeeper (Rose).
