Debating Society

On Tuesday 16 June 2015, Atlas’s top debaters went to discuss the idea of, ‘Should museums be free’. The backdrop for this wonderful event was Cartwright Hall, a fitting venue to inspire the pupils from the schools involved. Seven teams came together for their first annual competition. This took the format of seven debates, the topics of which were not known until the day, to determine the teams who faced each other in the final. The children are exceptionally enthusiastic about their debating society and this was a wonderful opportunity for them all to come together. Following an exciting day and several close debates, the final two teams took to the floor to debate whether museums and art galleries should be free. After a nail biting final, the winners comprising of pupils from Ben Rhydding, Burley Oaks and Addingham Primary Schools took home the coveted trophy.

Medals were presented to all those who took part – Whetley Primary Academy, Miriam Lord Community Primary School, Atlas Community Primary School, Green Lane Primary School, Dixon’s Manningham Primary Academy, Peel Park Primary School, Bowling Park Primary School, Ben Rhydding Primary School, Burley Oaks Primary School, Addingham Primary School, Eldwick Primary School (runners up), Crossflatts Primary School (runners up), Myrtle Park Primary School (runners up), Parkwood Primary School, Eastwood Primary School and Holycroft Primary School.

Trish Gavins, who initiated the Woolsack Debating Society, said “The pupils of Bradford schools showed in this debating competition that they can think deeply and articulate their ideas at a high level. These pupils are potential politicians, philosophers and leaders of the future.”

Reading Talent!

On the 11th June, some pupils from Atlas Primary were invited to attend a Reading Workshop at Green Lane Primary. Also attending were lots of other children from schools in the local area. The children got to work with and socialise with children from different schools and complete a range of activities which promoted the love of reading. They got to engage with a famous author, explore books in details and share stories. They had a fantastic time and came back full of ideas and things to share. These children will be ambassadors leading the summer reading challenge which is being held across the country, and we hope that the children at Atlas School will engage  and compete in.
