Donald Dewar Debating Tournament 2015/16

Report by Mrs Millar

On the evening of Wednesday 25th November, Grant Mackin and Christopher Wilson represented Our Lady’s High School in the first round of the 2015/16 Donald Dewar Memorial Debating Tournament. The boys were in Opposition to Holy Cross High School, Hamilton, debating the motion:  “This House believes that the internet does more harm than good.”

After a heated and entertaining debate, the judges decided to put both Our Lady’s and Holy Cross through to the second round of the competition. The boys were commended on both their style of delivery and the content of their speeches. Commiserations to Caldervale HS and Larkhall Academy, who also spoke very well.

The second round draw will take place near the end of January.
