THE ANNUAL Bromsgrove Schools Debating Competition takes place this Friday, March 16.
The event, organised by MP Sajid Javid, starts at 6pm at Waseley Hills High School which triumphed at last year’s contest.
The first debate will be on ‘This house believes we will see the end of newspapers soon’ with North Bromsgrove High School propositioning and Waseley Hills High providing the opposition.
Next up will be Haybridge High School and Bromsgrove School debating ‘This house would introduce a turnout percentage required to make election results valid’.
Then the last debate of the first round will be between South Bromsgrove High School and Hagley RC School which will be discussing ‘This house would ban social media for children up to the age of 15’.
Marks will be given on the way arguments are put across and challenged.
The schools with the best two scores will go through to the final where the motion will be ‘This house believes in rent controls’.
Admission is free to the event.
