On Tuesday 10th October the final of the House Debating Competition was held in the Main Hall in front of the whole school between Bronte and Nightingale.

They debated the motion: ‘This house would shop ’til you drop’’ and were able to mix up high level arguments on materialism, hedonism and individualism with practical discussion of the role of the retail sector in the UK economy.

All the girls performed at a high level, giving and taking points of information and thinking quickly on their feet. Bronte eventually won by a very narrow margin because of their ability to engage and entertain the audience. Both teams deserve great credit for the effort they put in and the superb performances they produced.
