Rotary Youth Speaks Competition


St Swithun's Church in East Grinstead was the venue of the Meridian Rotary Youth Speaks debating competition held on 15 November. 

This public speaking competition for schools is designed to support and encourage the development of effective communication skills.  

Three schools provided teams with both intermediate and senior classes, and they provided their own topics for debate.

The Winners in the Senior Category were Sackville School Senior Team A, debating the topic “It is impossible for a robot to think like a human”. 

The Winners in the Intermediate Category were Lingfield College with the topic: “Is planetary defence worth the money?”
All young debaters came out winners from the experience gained.
