Debating Team in Competition

Students at The Sixth Form College, Solihull challenged themselves in a debating competition last week.

Students Amaan Ali and Kate Sinclair, supported by fellow student Saffron March and Student Development Intern James Wild, took part in the ESU Schools Mace Debate at Lyng Hall School in Coventry. They debated the topic, “This House would ban the sale and consumption of meat.” They were up against Bablake School and after a very close debate, were edged out by just a few points. It was a great experience for the students, who are looking forward to more competitions later in the year.

It followed hot on the heels of another debate back in October, when students attended a debating competition with teams of other sixth form students from across Solihull at the Council Chambers in Solihull. The team on that occasion consisted of Amaan Ali, Aiesha Ali, Thanzeela Chowdury and Neila Hoxha, who debated topics such as, “whether CCTV is a breach of privacy” and “whether Higher Education should be free”. The quartet of students debated very well and Amaan Ali was asked to be the Chair for the final.
