F Social triumph in Debating Final
The Sixth-form Inter-Social Debating Competition Final took place
in the Coffee Shop on the evening of March 16th, in front of a large
and partisan audience, with F Social beating B Social, proposing the Motion, “This House believes that ‘a leader is
best when people barely know he exists’” (a quotation from Lao Tzu).
Chair was Christoph Wallendahl (just back in time from competing at the Fencing Nationals at Crystal Palace that same day); the timekeeper was AC and the Adjudicator, RML.
The winning F Team (pictured) consisted of Max Rumsey, Harry
Osborne and Conor Mosedale, who also won the coveted ‘Overall Best Speaker’ Award;
the losing B Social Team was Dan Kirchlechner, Nicholas Erasmus and James
Sheppard. Both Conor and Christoph were awarded their Debating Ties after the event.
