College Public Speaking Society
The College Debating Society recently took part in a series of debates at the Athenaeum Club in Liverpool. Three major topics were debated by six schools resulting in a very lively morning for our students!
Lisa, Deputy Head Girl and leader of the College Debating Society, said, “This was the place to argue and form opinions about a variety of topics and motions.”
Speaking after the event student Lewis said, “If you loved an argument, or generally thrive on controversy, this was the event for you!”
“Archbishop Beck also enters teams into a number of national competitions in debating and public speaking and run coaching session to help improve the students’ debating skills,” said Assistant Headteacher Bruce Hicks. “Last year public speaking at the College was a great success and we have now started the season once again. Training has commenced and we look forward to another successful year of debating and public speaking.”
Our first event took place on the 26th November at Birkenhead School.
