One of our primary reasons to conduct a weekly debate is to make the students aware about current issues. For our debate last week, we asked students about their opinion on “Same Sex Marriage” and we were amazed to see how each student supported their answer with a deep understanding of the consequences.  Many students stressed the significance of equality and the possible outcomes of the issue.

Each week students are challenged to engage in a whole-school debate about a variety of different topics.  The Weekly Debate is an excellent forum for students to learn about and question new things; improve their written English and hone their skills of evaluation.  The Weekly Debate takes place on padlet – a wonderful tool which shows a live feed of students’ opinions and ideas.
