Two teams from the Elgin Academy Debating Society took part in the Moray Schools Debating Championship on Monday night at Forres Academy. The motion before the house was “Donald Trump has been good for the world.” After a night of tense but highly enjoyable debating, Elgin Team 2 (Rhona Masson and Martin Keith) was placed second behind Forres Academy. Elgin Academy Team 1 (Rebecca Nally and Morven Cumming) also gave a spirited performance in support of the motion and both teams were commended by the judges for their intelligent and combative style. This was the final event for the Debating Society in this session and it is hoped that it will continue in future years following the excellent foundations laid by Rhona and her fellow S6 students.
