Debating Competition

Year 10 pupils compete in the Debating Competition held at Burnley College

A small group of Year 10 pupils were involved in a debating competition at Burnley College on Monday 25th June.   The girls had to debate a number of motions, including: ”˜No prisoner should get the vote’, and ”˜Pop stars should be judged on their music, not their lifestyle’.  

Hannah Patel, Zainab Khatoon, Rimsha Qureshi, Sanna Akhtar and Hui-Ling Phillips managed to reach the semi-final being narrowly defeated by Colne Primet.   A debatable decision!
