In honour of science week, the debating club had interesting motions up for debate this week.
Our first debate between Jaydan (for) and Dominic (against) was "That this house believes human cloning is the way forward". Dominic won and the motion was denied.
Our second debate was also lively and interesting – "That this house believes genetically modified foods are not the future", with Kieran for the motion and Peter against. Peter was victorious and the motion was denied.
Debating club takes place every Thursday lunchtime in room 103, Ms. Murphy’s room. Feel free to drop in, debate or just watch. Everyone’s welcome.
