OSH Debating Team Through to West Midlands Regional Final

February 9th, 2017

Congratulations to Kuldeep Matharu and Ben Alison on reaching the West Midlands Regional Final of the ESU Schools’ Mace 2016-2017.

They will be debating against Solihull School and opposing the motion:  THW replace the system of welfare payments with a negative income tax

Commenting on their achievement, Mr Nick Linehan (Head of Debating) said “This is only the third time OSH students have reached the regional final of the ESU School’s MACE, which is the oldest and largest competition for schools in the UK.  It is a complex motion, but Kuldeep and Ben are experienced debaters and will prepare thoroughly for the final.”

In the earlier rounds, the OSH team beat Concord College and Shrewsbury College. Only one team out of six will win the title of West Midlands Regional Champion and progress to the Semi-Finals in London.

We wish Kuldeep and Ben the best of luck.
