There’s huge excitement in the ESU Scotland office as we prepare for the St Andrew’s Day Debating Competition 2017!
The St Andrew’s Day Debating Tournament, held annually at The Scottish Parliament for the past ten years, pairs school pupils and university students to compete in a three-round tournament, culminating in a Grand Final in the main Debating Chamber. This year will be our 11th annual competition, to be held on Monday 27th November.
This year, we’re delighted to be joined by 24 schools attending from across Scotland – from Elgin Academy in the North East, to St Joseph’s College in Dumfries – as well as students from the Universities of Aberdeen, Strathclyde, Dundee, Edinburgh, St Andrews and Glasgow.
Teams will debate a variety of interesting topics – we’ll release these closer to the day, so keep an eye on our blog for updates!
More information about the event can be found here on our St Andrew's Day Tournament page, and here on the Scottish Government blog.
