Old Palace through to regional final of the Schools’ Mace.
The Schools’ Mace is the oldest and largest debating competition in the UK with approximately 250 entrants, so Old Palace was absolutely thrilled to make it through to the second round.
As expected, the standard of debating was exceptionally high from the other competing teams of Whitgift, Trinity and Woldingham, so Old Palace were thrilled when they learnt that they had been selected to go through to the Regional Final.
As Jessica and Rida (Year 12) said: “This is the first time we have entered this competition, so imagine our utter joy at reaching the next stage, where only 70 schools remain”.
Well done and best of luck for the next stage!
