Debate Team

On Thursday 16th of November me (George), Paige and my fellow friends Rubyann and Panash went to Alderwood Junior School for a debate as it was Parliament week. We had to debate on whether the taxes should be raised on sugary drinks. We were split into two groups, mixed with other schools to prepare our arguments for and against. My group was able to put forward an argument that sugary drinks were partly responsible for tooth decay and obesity, and as such a tax rise should happen. 

The other groups were unable to dispute this and we won the debate. I'm very proud to have been able to represent Talavera Juniors and our values as part of the debating team.
