Debate Mate 2020

Kingsbury High School was delighted to take a number of students to the launch of Debate Mate 2020 at Emmanuel Centre in Westminster.

The event gave students an insight into debating as they witnessed a show debate where the motion was 'This House would punish parents or guardians for the crimes of their children.' In an animated and lively debate, the proposition said that parents are already responsible for most things their children do, so why not extend that? While the opposition staunchly defended their position stating the punishment would be unfair and discriminatory. 

It was an enjoyable experience and it was wonderful to see so many of our pupils keen to take part and offer their perspective. Lower School Debate Club (Years 8-9) runs every Monday Lunch time  in Room 20. Please contact Mr Shaheen if you have any questions.
