Great Debate Championships
Our students had a great day at the Ark Senior Great Debate Championships on 23rd February which was held at the English-Speaking Union in London. We were so impressed by the students abilities - there were some very close debates!
There were great performances throughout the day and the standard of debate by Ark Boulton students was very impressive! We were particularly impressed with how the students improved their debating skills throughout the day. By the afternoon session, every pupil oozed confidence, asked incredibly inquisitive questions and had developed their listening and response skills – congratulations to all.
Our Ark Boulton team received particular congratulations on winning the award for ‘Most Improved Team’. To improve their score by 15 points between the first two rounds is an incredible achievement and shows that they really listened to the feedback that they were given.
Particular congratulations go to Rebekah Rahman in year 8 who took part in every debate on the day!
