AGGS Debate Team Success

Category: English, News, Students write

On the 25th of January, the AGGS Debate Team were thrilled to progress to the Regional Finals of the ESU’s Mace Debate Competition. The first heat took place towards the end of last year, in which Lauren, Katie and Esomchi were selected as one of two winning schools, after successfully acting as the proposition for the rather technical motion, that ‘Criminal and civil fines should be proportionate to the wealth of the offender’ against Loreto Grammar School. In the second round, the debate demanded a more political focus, as again AGGS were assigned the proposition, this time with the aim to persuade the floor that ‘The voting age should be lowered to 16.’ Their victory in this instance was sweetened by their triumph over rival team Altrincham Grammar School for Boys, securing their position as the only state school in the Northwest Finals. Congratulations!
