On Thursday 20th June 2019, three year six children represented Farnham Primary School in a debating competition hosted by the Bradford West Rotary Club.
The event, which was held at the Guide Post Hotel, was a challenge for the children who had to work together to gather ideas to create an award winning discussion. Their chosen theme was to consider the negative effects of teaching fairy tales to children. The judges and the members of the Rotary Club commented on how confidently they had delivered their thought-provoking discussion and how well they had used research to develop a convincing argument. The competition was tough: their fellow competitors certainly offered them a challenge, however the children spoke with passion and deserved to win first place.
We are extremely proud of the children involved and look forward to the next competition in 2020.
