HEATED DEBATE

Congratulations to the 4 Knox Academy pupils who have reached the Scottish Final of the ‘Institute of Ideas Debating Competition’.

Alex Muir, Emma Lynas, Olivia Hansen and Tom Gates took part in a heat against Lanark Grammar and Jedburgh Grammar on Tuesday 27th October; the motions debated were: "CCTV is a threat to our freedom" and "It is irresponsible for women over 50 to have babies".

We wish them luck in the Scottish final, which will be held at Edinburgh University in March.
