A good effort against a sizeable opposition! Many thanks for sending these in.
Three Ls - Inigo, Hector & Penn - headed off for a day of debating at the Oratory (what a befitting venue!). After a morning of workshops - drama, 'just a minute', debating techniques and strategies - the boys were fully primed for an afternoon of lively reasoned argument. They were given the task of proposing the Motion 'Sports stars deserve to be paid millions'. It was an engaging and compelling contest, and Cothill were awarded third place amongst the 8 schools taking part. Another motion that generated a spirited response was 'Teachers should be replaced by computers'.
11 finalists served up a thrilling Senior Spelling Bee competition. After several dramatic pauses and use of 'ask the audience', three challengers were left standing - Rory, Edward, and Nine. Rory and Edward were stumped by 'surveillance' and 'lieutenant' respectively, and it was Nine that emerged the worthy winner with the correct spelling of 'bureaucracy' (thank goodness for his time in Sauveterre!)
Many congratulations to all of these finalists who fought tooth and nail to win the coveted crown of Queen Bee status. In the end it came down to this thrilling shoot-out between Nine and Edward - enjoy!
Many congratulations to Bertie on his victory over Aaron in this much anticipated final!
Many congratulations to these boys on their election to represent the boys in high level discussions with Senior Management!
