Debate Mate Launch 2019
On 5th November students from Year 8 and 11 went to The Emmanuel Centre in West London for the London launch of Debate Mate.
The students enjoyed the lively atmosphere and were able to watch a selection of experienced debaters perform in a show debate.
The motion was 'We should lower the voting age to 16', students heard speeches from Debate Mate coaches, the national debate captain and two of our own Year 11 students; Nicole and Denise.
Debate Mate is an educational charity that uses the brightest university students to run after-school debate clubs in schools across the world. Empowering the youth of today, creating the leaders of tomorrow.
St Angela’s Debate Mate Club is held every Thursday after school for anyone in Year 7 to 10.
