International debating


Saturday 2nd March 2013 saw the St Swithun’s debating team return to the Oxford Union for the International Competition for Young Debaters.

Ella Jonas, Mary Gatenby, Holly Wagstaff and Eve Gatenby (all U5) travelled to Oxford for the event and spoke with a powerful blend of eloquence and rhetoric on topics including the return of historical artefacts to their countries of origin and doping in sport. The girls were outstanding ambassadors for St Swithun’s, exemplifying rigorous and far-reaching insight into a range of topics and good-humoured enthusiasm and participation.
