Prestwick Has Talent

The Provost’s Debate
The Provost’s debate was open to all s3 pupils across South Ayrshire. Pupils were given the opportunity to debate the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child with councillors and the Lady Provost. The Queen Margaret Academy debating team consisted of Elizabeth Price, Francesca Long, James Abott and Rebecca
Donald who successfully argued that Poverty was the main issue in preventing children from leading Healthy and Active Lives. Along with the Kyle Academy team, they also successfully tabled the motion that Scotland should increase the recruitment age for the Armed Forces to eighteen. The team made very convincing and persuasive arguments in a confident and considered way which was a credit to all the hard work they put in the weeks leading up to the debate as well as being given a super opportunity to see the process involved
in decision making by South Ayrshire councillors.
