Watson's continues to cement its place as one of the strongest debating schools in Scotland.
On Saturday 11 November Adam Mallis and Ben Stanley (both S5) retained the University of St Andrews Schools' Debating trophy, defeating around 40 teams from all over Scotland. Both boys are currently trialling for a place in the Scotland team, along with Lachlan White (S4), Ethan Stewart (S6) and Jamie Boothman (S5). Jamie and his partner, Alastair Kerr (also S5) were victorious recently at the Stand Out Speaking competition held at Strathclyde University.
Watson's now has three of the four major Scottish trophies and will look to make an impact in UK-wide competitions over the coming months.
