Premier’s Debating Challenge

Congratulations to our Year 12 debaters for a successful and winning debate in the Premier’s Debating Challenge against Caringbah High School on Thursday 10 May. Our debaters have certainly grown this year and with this increased confidence are experiencing great success.

In the last week of Term 1, a group of 11-12 debaters went out to Fort Street High School to compete in the first round of the Premier’s Debating Challenge. Discussing whether we need to raise the ATAR for those wishing to pursue a career in teaching, as the negative our team focused on the idea that a quality teacher isn’t based off their HSC ranking, but on their ability to be committed, passionate and be an effective role model. It was a close debate, but unfortunately we didn’t quite get there for the win.

On Thursday 10th May, our Year 12 debaters travelled to Caringbah High School for Round 2 of the Premier’s Debating Challenge. The students were prepared to explore an issue concerning the media, and the chosen topic asked students to debate whether terrorist images should be banned from mainstream media. As the negative, the students developed a consistent argument on how as a global community, we need to have increased awareness and education surrounding such controversial imagery. This insight saw them defeat the Caringbah team – a long-term rival!

Well done to these students, you have been great representatives of our school. The third round against Blakehurst HS is coming up in a few weeks – stay tuned for the result!
