After successfully debating their way to the semi finals, Theo, Caitlin and Isla (also known as the Parkroyal Vipers) faced stiff competition on Thursday at Tytherington School at the Stellar Debating finals. In the semi final they proposed as the Government that 'Boxing should be banned as a sport' against the opposition from Bollington Cross. Both sides put up an excellent argument, backing up their case with facts and figures and fielding questions from the opposing team. The judges had a very difficult decision however the opposition pipped the Vipers to the final to face the winner of the other semi final, Ash Grove.
The final was hard fought with Ash Grove successfully winning as opposition to 'Homework is good for primary school children'.
All the semi finalist were presented with a medal and certificate by the deputy mayor and we were all hugely proud of Isla who was awarded an additional medal as one of the top ten speakers of the tournament.
All three members of the team should be so proud of their achievement in this tournament; they were the only year 4 team to make it to the semi final and certainly represented Parkroyal brilliantly.
Collecting medals from the deputy mayor - lots of proud smiles!
