The Ruth Gorse Debating Team took part in the first ever Leeds Debate Mate Cup yesterday. They debated some complex issues such as whether we should ban music which glorifies violence, whether the UK should spend money on space exploration, and whether protests are an effective form of political expression. As always, the team did themselves proud and negotiated these complex matters with insight and maturity, leading to us adding to our victory tally. Miss Jones was both very proud of them and very impressed by them.
