On Wednesday 24th April Fazakerley’s debate team were invited to partake in the Debate Mate North West cup final at the University of Manchester. The competition sees teams debate on a range of topics such as the use of child actors, drugs in sport and politics. Impressively, many of the debates are unprepared which shows the team’s ability to think on their feet!
Fazakerley’s team is made up of pupils from Year 7 and Year 8 who are keen public speakers. The team managed to win one of the three rounds; a fantastic achievement as not only was the team the youngest entered in the competition, this was also the first year Fazakerley has entered the competition. All pupils worked well as team and are looking forward to their next debate.
