Annual Debate wins support!

Readers may remember the Great Debate held in our Centenary Year.

Three schoolboys took on three Supreme Court judges to debate the merits (or otherwise) of lowering the voting age to 16.

The debate was fierce and very entertaining. The look on Justice Estcourt’s face was priceless when he realised that they were up against serious competition. He and his fellow judges were clearly not used to being argued with, especially not by a schoolboy in shorts.

The fact that the school team had done their homework diligently and learned their debating skills, made it worse for ‘their worships’.

A well deserved win for the school team has maintained the proud reputation of NTHS Debating Team.
