Ace debaters at Queensferry High School have proved they have what it takes at the despatch box by flying through round one of a national contest.

S4 pupils Daniel King (left) and Samuel Pearson (both 15) are in the school’s debating club and in the ESU Edinburgh Mace competition, they won the debate against Earlston in the Borders, on whether there should be restrictions on broadcasting radical Muslim views in the British media. Teacher Joel Caldicott said: “This is a real boost. Debating is very valuable and Scotland has a long-held tradition of it.” Round two will be in early December.
