Any Questions?

Each Year Mr Phillips organises “Any Questions?” for our Year 8s to get their teeth into. It is always interesting seeing who is on the panel – often there are some unexpected speakers. what never changes is the range of questions that have to be answered – all make you really think: Is President Trump treated unfairly by the press? Do Brexit voters now regret their choice? Should President Mugabe have been overthrown, or did he do a good job in difficult circumstances? Should people who willingly smoke/drink/become obese have free treatment on the NHS? These are just a flavour of the questions the panel had to answer. Of course the audience got to have their say and make contributions. You can really sense who is up to date and interested in current affairs by what they say. Many thanks to Mr Phillips for organising Any Questions and to Mrs Hill for judging.
