Studying Shakespeare is a waste of time – student/staff debate

Almost as popular as the Spelling Competition at Melbourne High School are the staff/student debates. Today we were entertained and enlightened by the debate on the topic: Studying Shakespeare is a waste of time. Students argued on the negative side and staff on the affirmative side. My 16 GB ipad ran out of space several times, and I was able to film parts of speeches once I had deleted most of my apps. Apologies to Mr Blair Mahoney and Austin Bond, both 3rd speakers.

 

First speaker for the affirmative, Mrs Alex Grimwade

First speaker for the negative, Reece Hooker

Introducing second speaker for the affirmative, Mr Richard Edge
