Congratulations to Lara, Flora and Abi who won the Semi Final of the Rotary Club Youth Speaks Debate Competition.

Ms Holloway and the three Year 9 students travelled to Downlands Community School, Hassocks, last night for the competition. The range of topics that students debated were: There are no bad children, only bad parents; Air travel should be banned; Facial Recognition is a useful tool and our very own Protest is a powerful force for change.

Against some fierce and skillful opposition, our team was placed first and therefore progress to the Final on 7th March in Surrey. Flora was also judged to be the best proposal speaker of the event – well done Flora.

We wish them the best of luck in the Final.
