NJDC Winners!

On Saturday 30th September RGS hosted the 11th Northern Junior Debating Competition, a national event for teams in Year 11 and under. 44 teams from around 13 different schools entered the competition and the standard was, as always, very high. RGS entered five teams one of which, Adam Perros and Roisin Kennan, made it through three tough rounds to break to the final where they both made excellent speeches and won the competition! In addition, Roisin was judged top speaker in the competition. This makes them the fifth RGS team to win the competition since its inception 10 years ago.
