Beaconhurst Debating Society continues to go from strength to strength. Fraser Morrison, S6, and Charlotte Beckham, S5, won their MACE quarter finals debate, which took place in Trinity High School in Rutherglen. Beaconhurst was against the motion was ‘This House would frack.’ The debate was evenly matched, of a very high standard and a tough one to call. After a tense wait for the judging, Charlotte and Fraser were delighted to discover that they have reached the Scottish semi finals of this MACE competition, the largest and most prestigious school competition in the country, run every year by the English Speaking Union.
In the three years since we started competitive debating at Beaconhurst, we have reached the semi final stage twice. This is a significant achievement.
Debating takes place every Friday lunchtime for years Transition to S6 and also Mondays from 3.45 to 5pm for S4, 5 and 6.
Ms Bannerman, Very Proud Debating Coach!
