Oxford University Debating Workshop

On Tuesday evening, Oxford undergraduate Sulamaan Rahim, reading PPE at Wadham College, came to KEHS to deliver a debating workshop. He introduced the British Parliamentary style of debating and what to expect at the Oxford University Schools' Debating Competition, as well as a walk through of a motion on arguments for and against torturing terror suspects. 14 KEHS girls from the Lower Fourth to the Lower Sixth attended, with three other schools visiting for the event. Following the debating workshop, Sulamaan delivered a short presentation on Oxford admissions and took several questions from the girls about applications and interviews. Many thanks to Sulamaan for delivering a useful workshop as we prepare for both the Oxford schools' competition and the English Speaking Union public speaking competition.
