Today we visited the Debate-Ed event organised by our sponsors Lanyon Bowdler. Our Directors were invited to be judges, as school children from all over Shropshire were tasked with putting across their arguments on topical issues.
Prizes were awarded for best individual debaters and best groups. It was inspiring to see so many bright and intelligent children and young people engaging in so many issues and speaking with such confidence and eloquence.
Pictured above is co Organiser of the event Holly Edwards from Lanyon Bowdler, who delivered an inspiring talk to the students about the importance of listening and speech in society.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable day and would be proud to be involved in future events. We left with a sense that the future of our county, and indeed the wider world, is in good hands if these kids are an indication of the next generation of our planet’s custodians.
The final debate asked the question: Is it a superhero’s moral obligation to save the world against deadly threats?
