Cambridge Union Debating Finals

After successfully qualifying in the regional rounds of the International Competition for Youth Debaters, last weekend, Mrs Diamond and myself got the opportunity to take Lehtu and Jan to compete in the finals at the Cambridge Union.

The competition we faced was of the highest I have witnessed at any age range and our team really had to raise their game. Over the course of the day we moved from strength to strength, beating the Netherlands’ national team and teams from Oundle School, Dundee High School and Birkhamsted School along the way. It was an invigorating day and a steep learning curve.

Jan and Lehtu are now in a fabulous position to lead the charge in debating at Liverpool College next year.
