ESU Mace Debate

ESU Mace Debate

On Thursday 27th November, RGS hosted the north east regional round of the ESU Mace Debating Competition. There were five other schools taking part and the standard of debate was very high. Several interesting arguments were contested on motions that included: making alternative medicines available on the NHS and putting inheritance tax up to 100%.  The RGS team, comprising Ed Langley and Urban Cunningham, made it through to the next round along with Durham High School for Girls and Whitley Bay High School.
