On Wednesday, 27th November, students in Years 10, 11 and 12 who are involved in the Aim High project participated in a formal debate on the motion:
"This house believes that more positive discrimination must take place to increase the number of women and minorities in government to help ensure policies and initiatives reflect all of society"
A packed lecture theatre was treated to perceptive, well-researched speeches with both sides constructing sophisticated arguments and counter-arguments on this pertinent issue. Proceedings were managed deftly by Sara with Year 11 being represented by Amelie, Harry, Sam and Roberto, Year 10 by Charlie and Emma and Year 12 by Alec. At the end of proceedings, the motion was put to the vote which was overwhelmingly rejected by the audience. Well done to all those students who participated for a lively, spirited, thought-provoking debate.
