Congratulations to our Year 7 and Year 8 debating teams who were up against Engadine High on Friday 12 August. Both our teams had the same topic “All schools should have compulsory self-defence classes”. Both our Year 7 and Year 8 teams argued the negative.
Our Year 8 team of Angelique D, Natalie Q, Anastasia N and Aishlin W won convincingly. Our Year 7 team of Sophia K, Stefan K, Maralena S and Emma H did so well for their first debate and even though they lost, it was so close, as it took the adjudicator 15 minutes to decide. Thank you to Ms De Mayo and Ms Hill for coaching these teams.
This has been an important term for our debaters. Members of our Year 9 and Year 10 10 debating teams had a most enjoyable and inspiring day out at Sydney University watching the state debating final. This was a unique opportunity for our students to watch talented debaters in action and learn some new debating tips from the best.
