Culford Debate Team Continue Their Success
Following their success in Round 1 of the ESU School’s Mace Debating Competition in November, the Culford Debate Team headed off to King Edwards Grammar School to go head to head with Norwich School.
Culford had to oppose the use of all-women shortlists for Members of Parliament and they did it with style. Mary Godfrey (U5) and Luigi Murton (U6) built on their previous experience in Round 1.
This experience showed in a fantastic 1st opposition speech from Mary, which Luigi expertly built on and drove home as 2nd opposition and Summary Speaker. When the dust had settled, the judge praised the team’s sophisticated arguments and organised approach.
This was a tough night, but Culford can be very proud to be through to the East Regional Final which will be hosted here at Culford. Published: February 22 2017
