Year 6 did an amazing job of finishing their debating on drugs.
They were exceptional in working in two large groups. The organised themselves, created an order and sorted main points.
It was impressive team work.
When the debating began, it was clear each side were out to win.
They were courteous while others spoke, stood up to counter argue a point and were well spoken.
The debate question was “Should we legalise all drugs.”
The “for” team had some excellent facts and definitely a lot of passion. Great facts-including the boy in the news who needed an illgal drug to manage his severe and chronic pain. He was denied it because it was illegal to use regardless of the fact that it was the only thing that relieved his pain.
The “against” team were full of hard facts and determination. They put up a worthy debate. They were a great group, but on points, they were just pipped to the post by the “for” team. Boundless passion and counter arguments won them the debate.
Well done Year 6. You showed great cooperation, communication and presentational skills.
