Debate Mate - National Final (29/06/2017)

Yesterday, our amazing Debating team went to Oxford University to take part in the Debate Mate Nationals. After winning the Regional Cup, our team were invited along with 7 other schools to see who is the best Debating Team in the whole country. We went on a tour of the beautiful city of Oxford and then debated in some of  the most prestigious rooms in the University of Oxford. Our team won one out of two debates and one of our pupils were awarded with one of the top speaking scores in the whole competition. After a tough 2 rounds, we came fourth - we are the fourth best debating team in the country! The children have improved in confidence, articulacy and style. I am so proud of them and they are an absolute credit to Montgomery Primary Academy.
