Debating is a Modern Studies related club, which is run at Queen Anne High School. The club takes place between 13:20 and 14:00 in the social subject’s corridor and is held by Mr Richardson. This is a club in which S1’s, 2’s, 3’s, 4’s, 5’s and 6’s can discuss and argue recent and relevant topics. Such debates have been the Syrian refugees, Trump for president, Kanye 2020 and does Christianity ruin Christmas. Despite some of the said subjects being quite controversial, debating is a way for everyone to express their opinions in a non-violent but argumentative way. Here are some quotes from debating pupils.
“Debating is cool!” – Grace Baker
“Will help your confidence and increase your skills in public speaking.” – Sarah Haynes
