JCG Debate

Hosted by ITV Channel Television's Mark McQuillan

JCG Debate

The fourth installment, entitled "This house believes the decline of the printed word will lead to a decline in literacy standards", will take place on Wednesday, March 12, at 6.30pm.

Students from Jersey College for Girls (JCG) - along with those from De La Salle, Beaulieu and Hautlieu - will discuss the impact of technology on literacy standards at the latest JCG Debate Series.

Carl Howarth, Principal of JCG, said "This is a free event that is open to all members of the local community who are interested in the subject of declining literacy standards in the digital age.

We encourage all islanders, including students, parents and their friends from all Jersey schools to come along and listen to the debate and to contribute to the discussions afterwards. The discussions are always entertaining, thought provoking and conducted in good spirit."

The event has seen students from the four schools prepare for and promote the debate, which will see them tackle what is a growing issue, given the prominence of the internet and social media.

If you would like to attend, please email l.guy@jcg.sch.je for more details.
