This week Year 11 student Roo Colley conducted a wide-ranging discussion that covered several topics. First, he facilitated a debate about the male contraceptive pill and whether or not males would be willing to take this, and the advantages and disadvantages of it. The group also discussed whether people believe that gender-neutral uniforms should be worn by students, or whether they should have the option at least. Another point of discussion was the way social media and advertising gives females an unrealistic idea of body shape and health, and whether Instagram hiding the amount of “likes” on people’s posts has improved this problem at all. To finish, the group discussed Toby Thorpe’s climate change presentation in WAVE on Wednesday and whether people agreed with what he had to say or not, and whether we can stop climate change before it’s too late.
