Congratulations to Yasmine Kanagalingam and Gabriela Ivanova on taking second place in this year’s English Speaking Union Mace competition.

They qualified for the grand final and debated the motion: This House Would Grant Suffragettes Posthumous Pardons. 

The girls had to oppose the motion. A very difficult task!

David Blunkett judged the grand final and commended the girls for their amazing debating skills and ability to argue for ‘the more difficult side’.
