Debating and Public Speaking Society

Following a successful Junior Debate in February on the motion ‘The world would be a better place without humans’, the Society focused on Public Speaking this month. Senior students led a series of games with members to help build confidence in speaking aloud – no matter what the subject. Some thoughtful and poignant deliveries of song lyrics and the Shipping Forecast were very well received. Then, speakers were invited to address the group on a subject of their choosing, but in the School Hall where we practised projection. Students spoke about: over payment in the Premier League; Corruption; Conspiracy Theories (Are we being governed by reptiles?!); the perils of some forms of gaming and social media; learning languages and the toll homework takes on students and teachers alike.
