Debating competition

16th October 2017

On Thursday 12th October Charlotte, Emma, Evie, Alex, Ben and Evan from Y5 went to east Garforth primary for a debating competition. It was between East Garforth, Green Lane, Park View and Whetley. Our first debate was against Whetley, the topic was “Should you change your clothes because of what others think?” After 15 minutes of planning time, we started debating. We were for changing clothes and won securing us a place in the final. In the final we were against East Garforth and the topic was “Should mobile phones be allowed in schools?”. Remarkably we won meaning we got the trophy! We walked back to school, singing songs and when we got back to school everyone cheered for us.
