Pimlico Primary at Dukes Debating Festival
On 13 October, three of our Year 6 pupils were lucky enough to be selected to represent Pimlico Primary at the inaugural Dukes Debating Festival, held at Eaton Square Senior School. In the morning, Hamza, Sophie and Viktory took part in some fascinating workshops which taught them how to speak confidently and effectively in public, as well as how to compete in a MACE-style debate.
In the afternoon, teams from eleven schools debated with each other, discussing the motion “This house would abolish zoos.” Hamza, Sophie and Viktory put forward some extremely persuasive arguments for the opposition. Hamza and Viktory were highly commended for their debate performance and we are extremely proud of all three children. We look forward to competing again next year!
