Upper School Debate Evening
A hearty congratulations to all those involved in the Upper School Debate Evening this week. Pupils demonstrated great courage and confidence in their debates, with many masking waves of nerves with aplomb as they took their seats. Our NHP Habits were in full force: collaboration between teammates was supportive and spurred on competition; ideas were communicated with clarity and precision; our summary speakers in particular had to exercise great flexibility of thought, especially when faced with our audience’s witty and probing questions. We were entertained, challenged, and enlightened by all; well done! Thank you to parents for joining us and casting those all-important votes. A special thank you to the English department for their time, support, and good humour throughout, and to all members of staff who contributed time and expertise to the event.
