King’s Junior A Team Marches into Debating Semi Finals


At Somerset College on 28 July, two of our Junior A teams battled it out for a place in the semi-finals. After a hard-fought battle on the moot that ‘Performing Arts should be compulsory in schools’ a victor emerged and a semi-final berth was booked.

The triumphant team was: Emily White (1), Nisa Ahsani Iravani (2), Naomi Sweeney (3), Amy-Lee Smal (Timekeeper and Chair), Grace Browning (Reserve).

The team remains unbeaten and hopes to compete in the semi-final competition at Somerset College on 11 August, unless lockdown postpones the event. Should they win this stage, they will be in the Grand Final at Bond University.
