MacKinnon Cup Debating Competition
On the 22nd June pupils took part in the MacKinnon Cup Debating Competition held at Dumbarton Academy. This year’s motion was ‘technology should be integral to classroom learning’ and our team, which was made up of S4 pupils Niamh Friel and Alexander McKechnie, were opposing the motion. There were six teams competing; Hermitage Academy, The Vale of Leven Academy, Dumbarton Academy, Our Lady and Saint Patrick’s High School, Saint Peter the Apostle High School and Clydebank High School. Clydebank High was in the third round and went up against two pupils from Saint Peter the Apostle. Niamh gave a thought provoking and insightful speech which included talking about the damage technology can do to the teenage brain, whereas Alex gave a lively, witty speech about technology not being required to create great minds and had the audience in stiches. The judges, which included Labour MSP Jackie Baillie, declared Clydebank High not only the winners of their round but also awarded them best team in the competition and they were presented with the MacKinnon Cup trophy. Both pupils are fantastic ambassadors for the school and we are immensely proud of their success.
