Girls Win French Debates
Friday, 17 November 2017
Four Sixth Form languages students attended the North Schools’ Modern Languages Debating Competition held at Cheadle Hulme School, accompanied by Mrs Naughton. They debated a variety of challenging motions entirely in a foreign language.
The French team, Caroline Blair and Maya Drummond, made it to the final debate, where they faced Altrincham Grammar School for Girls and argued against the motion ‘Everyone should carry a weapon’. They made a strong case and won the French competition!
The Spanish team of Amélie Bamford and Pante’a Habibi also did commendably. Although won one debate in the preliminary rounds, they narrowly lost the other and so unfortunately didn’t get through to the final.
All of the girls put in a tremendous amount of work in order to achieve this level of success, and made the Modern Languages Department very proud with their efforts. The help of the languages assistants, Nuria and Léa, was invaluable in helping the girls to prepare for this challenging competition.
A team of students from the Boys’ Division also won the final German debating competition.
