Leeds City Council Primary Debating Competition 2023 - the finals!
Back in March we entered two teams of 3 students for the Primary Debating Competition - one team from year 5 and one from year 6.
There were 30 teams in the heats, and while both of our teams performed brilliantly and won their individual debates, it was our Year 5 team who made it into the finals at Leeds Civic Hall on Monday 17th July.
It was a fantastic day, with the top 8 teams from across the heats meeting each other head-to-head in the official council chamber where actual LCC debates happen!
Against some really tough competition, our team performed brilliantly and made it all the way to the final – ultimately coming away with silver medals!!
We are so proud of Mo, Charlotte and Nika – they did an absolutely amazing job and represented our school fantastically!
Waiting to get started...
