Continued Debating Success

Published on 1 December 2017

Ethan Stewart (S6) and Lachlan White (S4) defended their tile at the West Coast Worlds championship. Ethan and Ben Stanley (S5) participated as guest speakers in a competition for University students; finishing an impressive 10th out of 40 teams.

Not to be outdone, our Juniors were successful at the Edinburgh University competition. Simon Ezra-Jackson and Christie Logan (both S2) were crowned champions in an event open to all S1–S3 pupils in Scotland and the North of England. Finally, Ben Stanley has once again been selected for the Scotland team that will participate in the World Championships in Croatia. Watson’s had an unprecedented four debaters in the top 12 in Scotland, but only Ben made the final squad. We now look forward to the challenges of UK-wide competitions that are coming up in the new year.
