I-Shine - Debating Team
Massive shout out to the Y6 children who took part in a debating competition at South Hampstead High School. 8 teams of children from Orion and Goldbeaters competed against teams from other schools, mostly private and independent schools from different parts of London. All children enjoyed the experience and 2 teams from The Orion were declared joint winners of the whole competition having won 3 out of 3 debates - UNDEFEATED! The motions they argued for and against were:-
Cars should be banned in central London
Homework should be banned
The world would be a better place if some people had superpowers.
