The public is invited to the Ministry of Education’s annual Inter Secondary School Debates on March 6 at 5:30 p.m.

The Elmore Stoutt High School and the Bregado Flax Educational Centre will debate the first moot “The negative effects of legalising marijuana far outweigh the medicinal and economic benefit”.

The second moot, “The request for money and material things has led to a moral decline in society,” will be debated between Cedar International School and St. George’s Secondary School.

There will also be an impromptu Speech Competition for students during the debates.

The debates will be held at the Althea Scatliffe Primary School Auditorium.  All are asked to attend the sessions and support the students.
