iThink Debating Club
At iThink, Glenlola’s Junior debating club, pupils from Years 8-11 debate and discuss a wide range of both light-hearted and serious topics. Through participation in debates – whether as a debater or from the Floor – pupils develop many skills, for example, the skills communication, persuasion, independent thinking and research and the ability to challenge accepted views.
Coming to iThink is a fun way to spend lunchtime, with an opportunity to make friends from other year groups. Attending and delivering a speech at iThink will help with oral and written work in a range of subjects such as English, Religious Studies and History. iThink is particularly relevant to pupils interested in a pursuing a career in Law, Journalism, Politics or the Police.
