This week, 24 students from ISM and King’s College School, Wimbledon took part in this year’s “Joutes Oratoires” debate competition in French.
Motions discussed included the reintroduction of school uniforms in French schools, as well as the reintroduction of the death penalty to punish the worst crimes. All students engaged in lively and passionate debates.
Two teams made it to the “Grande Finale” and debated on an unseen motion (“To protect our planet, should we all become vegetarian?”). Yannick (ISM) and Athena (KCSW) won the finale and were awarded the prestigious cup. Félicitations, Yannick & Athena, for an outstanding debate, and bravo to all participants!
