The evening, held last Thursday (29th January), was organised by Teachers Mr Hare and Mr Torrington and was supported by the Catenian Association, who made the generous donation of a shield which will be inscribed with our winners’ names.

Six teams competed in argumentation about weighty topics such as the privatisation of the NHS, state education and the reintroduction of capital punishment.

A spokesperson for Christ the King College said:

“Each and every participant did a wonderful job and we hope they are proud of what they achieved. We also hope they will consider taking part again at the next event or even the National competition in Manchester, to which a College team has now been invited due to our students’ performances. Well done, all!”
