S5 pupils Delphie and Rohan, performed very well in the semi-final of The Law Society Donald Dewar Memorial Debate Tournament yesterday and have now successfully reached the finals.
The pair won against three other schools competing at the event after being given the motion just one hour before the debate and had no access to internet or advice from members of staff.
The debating tournament saw 64 teams from across Scotland compete remotely, with just one team to be crowned the winner at the grand final in June. Established in 1999, the Donald Dewar Memorial Debating tournament, run in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the Society and dedicated to the memory of the former First Minister Donald Dewar MSP, is Scotland’s largest annual schools debating tournament.
The final will take place in the Scottish Parliament and we wish them the very best of luck.
