House debating competition begins

Arguments flew thick and fast as IGS tutor groups picked their most convincing debaters to represent them in the 2021 competition.

Junior and Senior teams were selected, following some persuasive ideas and excellent rebuttal during extended tutor group on a wet Wednesday morning.

Students tackled the topics “that the media can’t be trusted” and “that learning from home is better than learning at school”.

“I think it’s really good for the students to debate in front of each other,” said tutor Henry Lester. “It’s a safe environment, and those who chose not to debate were respectful and quiet.”
