Over the past month, Sixth Form students have been nurturing their public speaking and research skills in the run-up to the annual Debates, as part of their PDP Programme. The debates were held in the Sixth Form library in front of an enthusiastic audience of Head of School, Assistant Heads, teachers, librarians, and fellow students. Two groups of students were randomly assigned to either argue “in favour” or “against” a proposition. Each proposition was chosen by the class themselves.

The propositions were:

    • Legalising recreational cannabis use in Malta is a step forward.
    • Despite the progress, women in Malta are still treated worse than men.
    • Ongoing assessment fosters deep learning.

We would like to thank all those involved with the preparation and set-up of the library to host this event. Well done to all the students!
