Glenalmond College Debating Success

Published Friday 18th of March 2011 05:16:02 PM

The Glenalmond debating pair of Marcus Buist and Simon Boendermaker have earned themselves a place in the final of the Donald Dewar Memorial Cup debating competition, after beating Robert Gordon�s school in the semi-final. This is a particularly fine achievement, given that Marcus and Simon are a junior team competing in this senior competition against 80 teams from around Scotland.

Both boys are in Patchell�s House at Glenalmond College, and have been regular contributors to house debating competitions, and they also competed in the senior competition last year. They are now passing on their skills by helping to coach younger Glenalmond pupils in the art of debating.
