The Norton Canes High School debate club has started up recently. The aim is to enhance speaking and listening skills and learn to conduct a debate. Members of the club have practised arguing for and against motions already and are now preparing for their first proper debate. The first debate is “This house believes that the monarchy should be abolished”. To help the group improve even further, pupils will experience a day of debating skills run by the English Speaking Union in the last week of this half term.
