Young Debaters at International Competition



2 February 2015

The Year 9 and 10 Debate Society took part in the International Competition for Young Debaters on Saturday, which was held at SOAS in London. Walthamstow Hall was represented by Helena Pinchuk, Charlotte Robertson, Juliette Grieve and Ana Lawther. This prestigious debating event is held specifically for Year 10 and under with the South East Regional round fielding students from schools such as Brighton College and Westminster. Our students impressed, coming second in their rounds, an astonishing achievement as this was their first ever competition. The girls enjoyed debating topics such as; "Should criminals be allowed to pay victims of non-violent crimes in exchange for a lesser sentence if the victim consents?" and "Should parents have the final say over the medical treatment of their children?"
