“We got the Power”
27 September 2018
On Thursday 26th April 2018 sixteen Year 10 and 9 students attended the London Urban Debate League held at the University of East London. The top 16 secondary schools in London were invited to the UDL and Steds (their first year of the competition) came third!
The motions were difficult with students taking part in three rounds: The Expansion of the UN Security Council, Building on Green Belt Land and the Impact of Reality Television. Students had ten minutes to prepare for each debate, making sure they knew arguments for both houses and of course fired up with rebuttal to destroy the opposing side.
St Edwards Students left inspired but more importantly their words were heard.
