Should social media be banned for those under the ages of 16?

Of course it shouldn’t cried St Mary’s, yet Roberts were firmly of the belief that all children under the age of 16 should not have a social media account.

 

We started our argument stating that cyber bullying causes major problems for many youngsters. St Mary’s argued back that social media has allowed Greta Thunberg to have a voice.

Our next speaked, argued that mental health is effected by social media, causing very serious issues for such young people. St Mary’s argued back stating that we should educate rather than banning it.

Our third speaker stated that inappropriate videos/images were a considerable problem with children not having the maturity to understand and could be influenced. St Mary’s argued that there are positive images- it helps youngsters teach their elders and can help with future job prospects.

Our last speaker said that adults online are potentially a major problem as strangers can influence or gain access to children’s lives. St Mary’s last speaker stated that social media helps people communicate all around the world.

After all speakers had argued their points, the audience were invited to voice their opinions. St Mary’s had brought many supporters who were firmly in favour of allowing social media for those under 16. The Roberts’ team managed to fend off any questions democratically and were then able to pose their own thought-provoking questions.

The mayor was convinced when he summarised as he too warned of the dangers of social media. Unfortunately, he was not to decide the outcome. The vote was put to the audience and Roberts received 27 votes as opposed to 34 for St Mary’s (who had a total of 29 people in attendance). A loss, yet a moral victory for Roberts who had convinced the mayor and the majority of the impartial attendees.

Well done Roberts for the way they conducted themselves and how they represented the school. Well done team.
