North of Scotland Schools’ Debating Competition

Well done to Martin Close and Andrew Jack who won the first round of the North of Scotland Schools’ Debating Competition – their first competitive debate!  The boys, who are part of a growing debating club at Bucksburn Academy, performed extremely well against some tough competition from Robert Gordon’s College, Meldrum Academy and The Gordon Schools.  Martin and Andrew were opposing the motion, ‘This House wants to be famous’ and a lively debate was enjoyed by everyone involved.  The team is now through to the next round of the competition, due to be held at Bucksburn Academy in November.
