Debating competitions

CLSG students at debating competition in St Paul's Girl's School

It has been a busy start to the debating season with debating at both St Paul's Girls' School and Francis Holland Sloane Square this week! Last Saturday, students took part in the women's novice debating competition at St Paul's, most participating in their first ever competitive debate. The debate topics included whether mummy vlogs should be banned and whether we should introduce a universal basic wage. On Tuesday, a second contingent of City girls travelled to Francis Holland Sloane Square for a couple of friendly debates on whether strong dictatorships were better than weak democracies, and whether single sex schools were preferable to coeducational ones. We are grateful to both schools that hosted these enriching debates, and for the excellent feedback provided to our students by the judges.
