2019 Youth Speaks

Sawston Village and the Perse School battled it out under new Debate Rules

We held our annual Youth Speaks Competition, with teams from The Perse and Sawston Village College.
Different rules have come into force this year which require a debate system.
The adjudicator was Gillian Powell, who is a retired head - specialist in Spoken English. She had her work cut out to decide between the teams.
The Perse topic was "Should we ban palm oil products in the UK".
SVC topic was "Those in the public eye have a moral duty to uphold society's values"
The winners were Sawston Village College who go through to the next round "District Finals" which takes place on 8th February at King Edward 6th School Bury St Edmunds
