ESU Mace Debating Competition

In the second round of the ESU Mace Debating Competition,  Ella W and Hettie T made a brilliantly complementary team, debating ‘This House Believes That Businesses Should be Prevented from Publically Commenting on Social Issues’ against an (almost) equally strong team from Liskeard College, but clinched it on the strength and clarity of their arguments and their rebuttal. So we’re off to the semi-finals – venue tbc.
We hosted the debate in the Hesletine Gallery and appointee brilliant local judges – Keith Sparrow, artist and performer and Beatrice Dyer, Southwest President of the Young Farmers’ Association. Isaac Heron Chaired and Sam Shiers was timekeeper – it was a great night!
