On Saturday 13 June, 14 schools from across the GDST took part in a virtual debating tournament designed to enhance their debating skills.
Putney’s debating club divided into four teams and over the course of the day took part in three debates each. In the first round the debate motion was, “This house would make private tuition illegal”. Putney did really well during this first round scoring one first place, two second places and one third.
Ms Katie Norbury, a Northampton High School judge, said that she wanted to see the debaters explain their points fully and express clearly what they believed in.
