Last Tuesday evening saw Samantha Cochrane (5T) and Morvern Carmichael (5S), alongside three other Highland schools, take part in the second round of the Donald Dewar Debating competition at Glenurquhart High School.
A strong team from Thurso High were victorious and went through to the next round. Samantha and Morvern debated well on a difficult topic – speaking passionately and creatively – particularly at a busy time in their school year.
There is a full schedule of debating events coming up in the months ahead and we are all looking forward to the next competition.
Special thanks are due to Jemimah Morris (6L) for preparing and practicing as an alternate.
