Hamilton Advertiser - - ON THE BEAT -

Scul­lion LAW head­quar­ters in Hamil­ton was the venue for the first round of the firm’s annual in­ter­school de­bat­ing cup.

Reign­ing cham­pi­ons Dun­can­rig Sec­ondary were joined by pupils from Holy Cross High, Ud­dingston Gram­mar, St An­drew’s & St Bride’s High and Hamil­ton Gram­mar.

Ni­cholas Scul­lion, man­ag­ing part­ner, said:“the stan­dard of de­bate amongst all the pupils from across La­nark­shire was very high.

“We have a lot of tal­ented in­di­vid­u­als in our com­mu­nity and it is our plea­sure as a lo­cal busi­ness to pro­vide them with a plat­form to shine.”

Hamil­ton Gram­mar made it through to the semi-fi­nal after de­bat­ing St An­drew’s and St Bride’s, from East Kil­bride.

Larkhall Academy were sched­uled to de­bate against Holy Cross High but pulled out due to un­fore­seen cir­cum­stances.

Holy Cross de­bated rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Glas­gow Univer­sity De­bat­ing Union and also made it through to the semis.

Dun­can­rig Sec­ondary de­bated Ud­dingston Gram­mar and both schools made it to the semi-fi­nals on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 14. The fi­nal is on Tues­day, December 4, from 5.45pm to 8pm, in South La­nark­shire Coun­cil head­quar­ters.
