Spotlight On Human Rights As Debate Hots Up

Human Rights were firmly in the spotlight as students debated whether prisoners should be given the right to vote.

Year 8 have been studying the topic as part of their Integrated Studies lessons and shared their opinion as the motion was tabled during lessons this week.

Youngsters spent some time researching their side of the argument before presenting their views during a high-quality debate.

Year 8 student, Simon Davies, said: “It was an interesting topic to research and debate about. I really enjoyed it.”
