Debating the issues!

The brilliant Ralph Allen Debating team of Joe Alder, Louis Dejeu-Castang and Manny Campion-Dye who won the first round of the Youth Speaks public speaking competition in January were again in action at the regional heat on Thursday 12th February.

This was a very closely fought competition, held in Crispin School in Street, where the team were up against 5 other teams from Somerset. In the event, the Ralph Allen team came second by only 1 point to the Castle School team from Castle Cary.

The judges commended all teams on the high standard of the competition, commenting that only 3 points separated the top 3 teams.

Mrs Rutter, Teacher of English, who organises the Ralph Allen students for the competition, said, ‘The team did very well and were up against strong competition.  They were a credit to Ralph Allen School.’
