Classroom debate in sixth class.

A very interesting debate took place in class as we explore persuasive writing.

The boys conducted their own research and delivered great speeches with great confidence and clarity. They then took numerous questions from the floor and answered them with respect and knowledge.

Well done to the the debaters and the rest of the class for respectful listening and insightful and interesting questions.
