Debate Mate

This year’s Debate Mate club has started with two trips. The first trip took place on 9th October which involved fifteen advanced student debaters being selected to attend the event at Bank of America, Merrill Lynch.  At this event Highbury Fields students took part in a networking activity where they got to meet employees of Bank of America, and then watch a show debate put on by the lead mentors at Debate Mate.
 
The second trip on 5th November involved 33 students travelling to the Emmanuel Centre in Pimlico where several other London school students were in attendance. Highbury Fields were asked specially to participate in the show debate due to the success of the club over the past few years. Amabel and Masiha bravely volunteered and on the evening made two impressive speeches against their opposing teams in front of the entire audience at the launch.  It was a close call but Amabel’s team won the show debate! 
 
Both evenings were a success and all students who attended represented the school brilliantly.
