Witchford VC’s round of the Debate Mate Competition, organised by Lucy Fraser MP QC, took place today. Our teams debated the motion ‘do prisons work?’. Students had to develop arguments that held despite personal beliefs which was impressive. The winners, Hope & Bethany will now go on to debate in Parliament with Alison as their reserve. Well done to Madeleine, Lottie, Adam and Alexander who debated well, and to Grace who played a supportive role.

The goats will be school pets and college house mascots. The maintenance of their environment and welfare will be an ongoing duty that all students can contribute to, teaching them about responsibility.

Year 8 Globe Visit - posted 4th Mar

 

“What, my dear Lady Disdain! are you yet living?” quipped Year 8 students partaking in the Lively Action workshop at the Globe theatre this week. Congratulations must go to all students who threw themselves into the roles of Benedick and Beatrice, following their study of Much Ado About Nothing in class this term. The day began with a coach journey to sunny Bankside and a quick stop at the gift shop for obligatory wooden swords and Jacobean flower crowns. Following a tour of the current 22-year-old Globe theatre and a brief history lesson on the demise of the former theatres, we stepped inside to watch the actors rehearse a production of Macbeth. For many, seeing a ‘behind the scenes’ taste of life on stage was a firm highlight of the day.
