DOROTHEA BEALE DEBATE - SATURDAY 6 DECEMBER
The annual debate featuring CLC vs Guild took place on Saturday 6 December in College with the following motions:-
This House believes Socialism is dead
This House believes that it is wrong for schools to instill Nationalism in the curriculum
Both debates were keenly fought with both sides covering all possible viewpoints and arguments on the topics. Throughout the entire debate, the audience were on the edge of their seats and provided a wide range of questions during the floor debates. Guild were represented by Eleanor Hervey-Bathurst (2006-2013, St Helen’s/St Hilda’s) and Elizabeth Broyd (2011-2013, St Hilda's). After an exciting morning, the adjudicators awarded the trophy to the College team of Annabel Lawrence and Kitty Hatchley.

Malala gives Speech Day address
Malala Yousafzai was the keynote speaker at College Speech Day on Saturday 5th July.
The teenage campaigner gave an inspirational address to pupils and friends of College in the Princess Hall.
Malala, whose fight for universal girls’ education has made headlines worldwide, told the story of her childhood in Pakistan and how she developed a passion for learning. She said: “My message is that you should believe in yourself and believe in your talents, because you all have something special. ”Malala spoke of the importance of education for all girls and how she realised the terrorists who attacked her in October 2012 were scared of girls' empowerment. College Principal Ms Eve Jardine-Young thanked Malala for attending and praised her work to promote girls’ education.
