Debating against Selborne College

St Andrew’s College met Selborne Debating team, this past Friday at the Selborne vs St Andrew’s Derby. Although motions were shared earlier in the week giving both teams times to strategise and plan arguments, it was all put to a coin toss to determine which sides would argue for proposition and opposition sides. The Junior team proposed the motion: This House Regrets the rise of “Slacktivism”, with an info slide: Slacktivism is showing support for a cause mainly through low-cost means. Examples include signing of online petitions and copying/sharing social media statuses. Although our team showed great understanding of slacktivism, we were unable to argue why its rise should be regretted in society seeing as it is the most convenient way to raise awareness about potent issues in our societies. The senior team opposed the motion: This house believes that contemporary society can no longer support old school traditions. Although they couldn’t agree on what is considered to be an “old school tradition”. The SAC team showed why there is greater benefits than harms to old school traditions and took the debate for St Andrew’s College.

We look forward to debating against Selborne College again soon.
