Monday the 25th of June saw Burnley College’s second annual debating competition, where Year Ten students from the local schools debated against each other in ‘knockout’ rounds.

Malik Metcalfe, Linda Rothwell, Callum Aspinall, Conor Emmett and Jessica Hatton all took part, debating on topics as diverse as media privacy to organ and tissue donation!

Unfortunately the Rhyddings team did not make it to the semi-final but peformed excellently- things got very heated in places! Malik also won the impressive title Debater of the Day- voted for by other students from different schools. A massive well done to these five Year Tens- you were fantastic and a huge credit to our school. And extra congratulations to Malik!
