Well done to S5 pupils Jess McGhee, and Alisa Matyunina who took part in The Donald Dewar Memorial Tournament held at the Royal High School on Tuesday 26th January.
Jess and Alisa had the task of arguing for the motion that “Compensation should be paid for past injustices”. The girls gave an excellent performance, however despite their valiant efforts, will not proceed to the semi-finals. This was the first year that Jess and Alisa had entered a National debating competition and I am sure both would agree that it has been an invaluable experience. Well done again girls.
