English Speaking Union Mace Competition
Sevenoaks has had a tremendous week for debating, with two U6 students reaching the final of the English Speaking Union Mace Competition.
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’.
