Our returning students have been preparing their points of view, on current issues, for group debates. Using material via the internet and using their own personal experiences they had to prepare ideas for both sides of the argument, 'that children should be allowed to climb trees'.
It was great to see the vast ideas shared for both sides of the topic in a clear and confident manner. It was also pleasing to see the students were actively listening to their opponents ideas and rebut where appropriate. We hope to provide more oral language and thinking critically opportunities in the future.
