Into the IPSHA debating season

On Friday last week we hosted a debate against Newington College. The topic for the debate was that ‘staying in the shade is better than using sunscreen in the sun’. We won both debates and the adjudicator commented on the interesting and unique points raised in both our Negative and Affirmative debates. As feedback, she said that we could improve our reasons by explaining them more and providing more evidence, and to rebut all the points.  She also pointed out that we should not say our point is good, but why it is better than the other team’s point. Overall, it was a very good debate, and we had a lot of fun.
