Year 8 Debate Workshop


This week, Northfield's Year 8 Debate Team came together for the first time to participate in workshops run by members of the Parliament Education Service. Students took part in workshops about debating, where they argued for the reduction of the voting age from 18 to 16 years old. They also learnt about the process of making laws by creating their own clauses for the voting system.

The Parliament workers commented on how articulate and confident our students were, and how impressive their knowledge of wider society is.
