Joining the Debate

On Friday 8th March, four of our Year 10 students represented Holy Trinity Academy at the annual debating competition held at the Queen’s School, Chester. The competition saw schools from across Cheshire and Shropshire compete in debates on this year’s topic ‘Society and the Individual’. During the course of the day students also took part in a workshop and lecture from Dr Rebecca Wright, pictured with our students, who is an international human rights activist and a UK criminal barrister. Dr Wright’s inspirational lecture included many stories about the various projects and criminal cases she has worked on in countries such as Afghanistan, Qatar, Syria, Libya and Egypt. The girls demonstrated brilliant team work throughout the day and spoke eloquently in all rounds of the competition.
