Yesterday pupils from Ibstock Place School, St Stephen’s Primary School, Bromfield House School, Garfield Primary School and Notting Hill and Ealing Junior School made debating history in the first ever heats of the first Cicero Cup! The standard of debate was superb as the teams addressed the motions “This house would abolish the monarchy” and “This house would not send humans into space” along with two surprise impromptu topics.
The judges, William and Cameron found it very hard to pick winners from the wonderful debates. Congratulations to Bromfield House and St Stephen’s for progressing to the finals which will be held at Linklaters in March.
Many thanks to Ibstock Place Senior School for hosting the heats. The pupils loved debating in the beautiful ballroom and the brownies were one of the highlights of the day!
