Impromptu Debating Championships



The Impromptu Cup debating tournament was held on 7 August at St Catherine’s College. The competition provides a great opportunity for students to become more confident in their debating skills, and to improve their ability to develop detailed arguments in a short space of time.

Congratulations to Catherine Ramoo, Aria Ngarimu and Samantha Samaniego on winning the Impromptu Cup. In a very entertaining final debate they successfully affirmed the moot This house believes that all cats should be microchipped. They are to be congratulated on being the first St Mary’s team to win the Junior section in the Impromptu competition which has been running for 15 years. Aria Ngarimu received a Highly Commended speaker award. Aria is to be congratulated on this recognition of her fine speaking style.
