Roding Valley High School takes debating honours

Roding Valley High School has won this year’s Epping Forest Schools Parliamentary Debating Competition organised by Epping Forest MP Eleanor Laing.

Eight schools took part this year with the schools discussing the Motion: “This House believes that it would be in Britain’s best interests to remain within the European Union”.

A split vote was recorded when the Motion was put to the audience at Davenant Foundation School, Loughton, this evening.

The winning Roding Valley High School team of Duncho Atanassov and Matthew Tinker had spoken against the Motion.

Matthew said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have won. It’s amazing to have won the debate on behalf of the school. I would like to thank all the school’s research team who helped us secure this victory.”

The runners-up were Aliyah Akram and Faye Dennis from Braeside School, Buckhurst Hill (who spoke against the Motion) with the King Harold Academy team of Lisa Nakimuli and Adam Freeman (who spoke for the Motion) receiving a Highly Commended prize.

Also taking part were Davenant Foundation School, Epping St John’s School, Debden Park High School, Chigwell School and West Hatch High School.

Epping Forest MP Eleanor Laing said: “I was extremely impressed by the exceptionally high standard of the debate. The arguments were intelligent and well-constructed.

“I am always pleased when it is a lively debate.”
