AFTER much practise and preparation, two debating teams have gone head-to-head.
Bourne Community College was the winner of the West Sussex Debate Competition, after meeting Midhurst Rother College in the finals.
“With three challenging motions ahead, both teams had their heads in the game and their eyes on the prize,” said a spokesman for Bourne.
“Despite weeks of research and preparation, the teams’ nerves shone through as the first debate got under way.”
The teams debated the relevance of the church and big society – and led by captain Sophie Young, Bourne was described as an ‘unstoppable force’.
