Debate Club Event at Nørre
The Master Class English Class (STX) from Silkeborg Gymnasium visited Nørre’s Debate Club in March. The event started with an introduction to formal and competitive debate by Jonas No Sjølund. Jonas is the former assistant coach for the Danish National Debate team and is now a law student and debate coach.
After the inspiring introduction, Nørre G and Silkeborg held a debate competition. In the rounds, the debate dealt with subjects regarding influence of affirmative action on feminism, separating students based on academic skills or age and whether previous offenders should be allowed to win awards like the Oscars.
It was an interesting afternoon with good tips and practical experience for everyone. Nørre’s Debate Club look forward to arranging and participation in future debate events.
