St Paul's lift the cup in Newcastle debating competition

14th June 2018
St Paul's Year 6 debating team bring home the Cup
We are delighted that our Year 6 debating team has won the West End School's Trust debating competition. The subject of the debate was "All plastic should be banned" and we were against the motion so had to defend the use of plastic.
 
The team did a lot of research and preparation and created a story  called "a day in the life of plastic" to illustrate how much we all use and need plastic.
 
They also argued that- while we need plastic- we must "Research, Reduce Recycle," a mantra that ran through their powerful presentation.
