Debating

Despite a valiant effort Cardinal Wiseman exited the Debating Matters competition at the first hurdle on Tuesday night.

 Despite a valiant effort Cardinal Wiseman exited the Debating Matters competition at the first hurdle on Tuesday night.
 
In the qualifying round at UCL, they were defeated by a Hounslow school on the motion 'sportspeople should not be seen as role models.' It was a high powered debate but the judges felt the opposition were better able to defend their ideas.
 
There are plenty more opportunities for debating students in further competitions. Meanwhile, in house, Wiseman's lower school debating club takes place on a Tuesday lunchtime, and upper school debating club on a Friday lunchtime. In between these, the Cogitamus philosophy club is on Thursday at 1pm. All in J215, all welcome.
