HOUSE DEBATING COMPETITION FINAL

Posted on

On Tuesday 19th January, Ryan Corry and Abigail Magill, representing Pottinger House,  proposed the motion, “This House believes that Donald Trump would make an excellent US president.” They were opposed by Laura Fleck and Conor Callaghan, representing Shaw House.

The adjudicators were very impressed by the level of research that participants had undertaken in preparation for the debate and by the delivery of the speeches and had great difficulty in reaching a decision over which side should win the debate. While the motion was  carried by the House, they have awarded the debate to the opposition (Shaw House) by the narrowest of margins.
