As part of our extracurricular activities at Boswells, we run a debate club every Thursday lunchtimes for all students to attend. The topics we discuss are a combination of varied current affairs, school matters and can often be controversial. The students arrange to research something they feel passionate about and present this to the members. We then debate and take votes as to whether they agree/disagree with the debater.
Some examples of student's debates have been "Should there be a world ban on Shark Fin Soup?"
"Is there still sex discrimination against women or has it altered towards men?"
"Does homework cause more bother than it is worth for student, parent and teacher?"
To find out more, students can pop along to C2 Thursday lunchtimes, bring their lunch and engage in a debate. It builds confidence, public speaking and helps students to see things from a different angle.
