Senior House Public Speaking

The Battle for the Watson Trophy
The Battle for the Watson Trophy 2022-2023, began on Friday with Senior House Public Speaking.  We were delighted to welcome Tom Ward (Hampden ’06) to adjudicate the competition. The list of topics discussed showed a real depth of thought and passion from our Speakers.
Topics included, “Is politics becoming more polarising?”, “The Climate Crisis: Who plays the bigger hand?, “Freedom of Speech” and “Moving On”.
After much deliberation, it was Paterson House who came away with first place, followed by Lee House and Denson House in joint second place.  A fantastic result and congratulations to all who took part.
