Law Society of Scotland’s ‘Donald Dewar Memorial Debating tournament’

Pupils from schools across Scotland were competing in the semi-finals of the Law Society of Scotland’s ‘Donald Dewar Memorial Debating tournament’ last night. Michael McGrade and Holly Edgar were representing St Ninian’s at Douglas Academy in Milngavie and presented a powerful opposition to the motion that ‘it is regretful that social media is the primary source of news distribution’. 

Both Michael and Holly worked incredibly hard to draw together the most compelling evidence in their case, delivering well-structured and highly convincing speeches on the night and tackling the proposition’s counter-arguments confidently.

Although Michael and Holly will not proceed to the next round, we wish them the very best of luck in future debates.

Public Speaking and Debate Society News

Fourteen members of the St Ninian’s Public Speaking and Debate Society had the pleasure of participating in the 2017 Glasgow Music Festival competition at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall yesterday. All students performed exceptionally well in the prepared speech section and found the event a great opportunity to hone their skills and receive quality feedback from the judging panel.

A special mention must go to Kate McLaughlin, Rhona Mowat and Shona McGibbon who won first place in their categories. Well done!

Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service Public Speaking Competition

Amina and Caterina (both S3) were competing in the North Strathclyde semi-final of the ‘Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service Public Speaking Competition’ at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last night.

The girls had to deliver speeches on the thought-provoking topic – “Not a child, not yet a grown-up –when should the law treat young people as adults?” Both girls delivered sterling performances which allowed them to beat competition from Stewarton Academy and Auchenharvie Academy to secure a place in the North Strathclyde final at Paisley Sheriff Court on Wednesday 29th March.

We wish the girls the very best of luck!
