HSP: Debating and Goodbyes

Wow, what a week! Before three of our awesome HSPers sadly said goodbye, we all took part in a very informative and very engaging debate. Using the topic, “Students should wear a school uniform at high school”, our students spent all week preparing their arguments and finally got the chance to have it out with each other in a challenging debate! … more on that later. Following the debate, the students had a chance to play some sport and have a party to say goodbye to 3 of our beloved students.

THE DEBATE: UNIFORMS?? … APPARENTLY NOT!

Well, should students really wear uniforms at high school? According to our students debate outcome … no! Both teams presented some very interesting arguments and delivered them very well, however, it was down to the question time (cross-examination) that set the teams apart. With some excellent attacking questions from Team 1 (with a particularly standout performance from Tim!) and strong answers to their own questions, team 1 were the winners – arguing that students should NOT wear a uniform in high school. Let’s take a look at some of the action that day …

Team 1 – Negative (students should NOT wear school uniforms in high schools)

Team 2 – Affirmative (students SHOULD wear school uniforms)

… well, who knew debating could be so much fun??

The teams (minus Jazmin, who had to leave early).

The winners … TEAM 1!! Well done to both teams who did an AMAZING job in preparing for and delivering their arguments, I’m so proud of you all!

GOODBYE TO 3 MORE

And then we said goodbye in traditional style … with doughnuts and other junk food!!

We wish Eric, Tim and Stella all the very best in their futures as they head back to their countries. Have a safe trip and I hope to see you all again one day!

Until next time …

– Owen (Teacher of H.S.P.)
