Deutsche Bank Debate Mate Cup
Congratulations to the two teams who represented the Mosslands Debating Society in the Deutsche Bank sponsored Debate Mate Cup Regional Final.
Congratulations to the two teams who represented the Mosslands Debating Society in the Deutsche Bank sponsored Debate Mate Cup Regional Final held at Liverpool Hope University on Monday 27th April.
Sixteen teams across a range of Merseyside schools competed against each other throughout the day, with topics ranging from “Eco Terrorism”, to “Banning Cosmetic Surgery”. Both teams performed exceptionally well, finishing in the top five. Mosslands A, comprising of Daire Patten, Max Flanagan, Ellis Reid and Ben Harding, reached the final, only narrowly missing out on lifting the trophy against North Liverpool Academy.
Students have been attending debate sessions in school throughout the year. They have gained a range of valuable speaking and listening skills, as well as improving a range of high order thinking skills and non-cognitive abilities such as confidence, teamwork and leadership.
Well done to Tom, Adam, Cameron, Robert, Ben, Ellis, Daire and Max. Pupils who are interested in getting involved should speak with Mrs Roberts in school.
