This week our amazing debate teams took part in a preliminary round of the debate mate tournament entitled “Urban Debate 2018”, which took place at Tidemill Academy, Deptford.
Our teams consisted of three teams of six children. Each team competed in a total of six debates with teams from the other schools taking part. Rotherhithe Primary School is very proud to announce that our amazing teams won five out of the six debates that took place! Amazing!!!
The topics of the debates included “should their be a tax levy on sugary drinks?” and “should children play video games?” The debates will continue throughout the year so please keep checking our blog posts for updated information on the successes of our amazing teams!
