St Margaret’s School for Girls triumphs in debate

Pupils won the North of Scotland Schools Debating Tournament

St Margaret’s School for Girls in Aberdeen, the North-East’s only all-girls’ school, fought off fierce competition in the recent North of Scotland Schools Debating Tournament to secure first place and be awarded the coveted tournament quaich. 

Six schools assembled for the final, hosted by Albyn School, having scored highly in three previous rounds.  

The competition, open to all secondary schools in the North of Scotland, was started in 1994. 

The winners of the event this year, taking home the John Alan Cameron Quaich, were the school’s Lisa Abraham and Iona Thomas-Wright. 

Anna Tomlinson, head of St Margaret’s School for Girls said: “We are immensely proud of our debating team. Lisa and Iona have been keen debaters since 1 Senior, and as President and Vice-President of the St Margaret’s Debating Society they have run the club and mentored younger pupils over the last two years. 

“Keen to develop presentation skills, while enjoying the cut and thrust of forensic debate, they have also made their mark at public speaking and Model United Nations events. We look forward to seeing the team flourish and congratulate the girls on their well-deserved win.”
