On 1 February, a team of Sevenoaks students travelled St Paul’s Girls School for the London French Debating Competition.
Congratulations to Ben Appleby and Tessa Owen who faced some tough competition versus Blackheath, Queen Elizabeth and Tiffin, but debated superbly. They progressed to the regional round, which took place this week. Sadly at this, they lost narrowly against City of London School. It was a fantastic debate, on the motion ‘Devrait-on interdire la vente du tabac?’
Well done also to Antonia Norris and Anna Vollini who also debated fantastically but lost one of their debates against a very strong opponent.
Thanks to Claire Godwin (French assistant) and Alex Chaya (L6) for their help, and well done to all who participated.
