WCCS Half-Term (Summer) Review 

We have had a tremendous first half of the Summer term with our Debating & Interview Clubs at WCCS. 

In our skills and presentation work, we have covered key body language tips, including Active Listening, Persuasive Language and Structured Argumentation. 

Our warm up questions have involved both interview style and philosophical thinking questions - such as describing yourself in three words, should we continue to handwrite or just touch-type? Is Music more important than Sport? Is it ok for Politicians to change sides? 

The term has also seen regular newsround discussions - covering key current affairs from local and mayoral elections to environmental issues, the War in Ukraine, conflict in the Middle East, the forthcoming summer Olympics and a new royal portrait. We have also focussed on anniversary occasions from the Channel Tunnel at 30 and the Coronation Anniversary. 

We have had some fantastic debates with excellent proposition and opposition points, as well as contributions from the floor/and POIs. Our Motions have included amongst others, topics on travel, global warming, organic farming, technology in sport and Space exploration. 

Much looking forward to our sessions post half term! Well done all.
