  • Delta Debating Competition

    22nd November 2017

    Last week some members of 5SR visited East Garforth Primary school for a debate. There were four schools from Delta in total. The topic we had to debate was, should you change your clothes if people judge you? We came up with some fantastic ideas and great language, but unfortunately we lost to the other team. After listening to the other debates, we have been inspired with lots of ideas for the next time we go to the competition.
