This month 30 students from Years 9, 10 and 11 competed in the 2021 Virtual Mock Court International Debate Competition where six teams from ELIS Murcia presented their arguments for and against a ban on plastics. Almost 200 students participated in the competition from 15 countries around the world. A truly global event!
Our students demonstrated a very high level of English and the ability to formulate very persuasive arguments judged by experts in the field of law. The ELIS Murcia teams performed exceptionally well with three teams winning their debate. There were several notable individual performances as well including 4th place positions for Jesús De La Peña in Year 10 and Rebeca Fortini in Year 9 for their closing arguments.
Congratulations everyone and well done to their teacher Rachael Mirfield too!
You should all be very proud of your achievements and we hope to see you competing next year!
