The third day of the summer school brought with it our much anticipated Debating Masterclass at the Oxford Union. The students all took a class in British Parliamentary debating before clashing in a number of verbal battles over a range of different subjects. After several heats, teams for the finals were selected. They then spent an hour flinging back and forth passionate arguments and rhetoric before the dust settled and victors were announced. The teams of Zoe & Giovanna (best pair), and Nour & Huzaifa (best speaker) narrowly overcame the opposing teams of Ariel & Oliver, Roger & Laura R. Sylvia also picked up an award for best speaker outside of the final. With all their words spent for the day, everyone headed to bed to recharge.
