We Agree to Disagree!

On Friday, 9 August 2013, the Year 7 debating team from our school went up against Heathcote High School. Our team consisted of Hannah (first speaker) Dominic (second speaker), myself (third speaker) and Katherine (team advisor). The topic was that smoking should be banned in Australia, and we were the affirmative team, which meant we had to agree with the statement.

 In our one hour planning time, we decided what each speaker would say. When planning time was over, and we were getting ready to speak, we all felt confident, yet nervous. Once we started, we came up with a few rebuttals for the negative team. Even though we were still very nervous, we spoke fairly well. After the debate was over, we were announced as the winning team by the adjudicator. We were thrilled and received some feedback from the adjudicator, who went through our strengths and weaknesses. The debate ended with the two teams chatting over a snack that had been provided for us.

 Thank you to Miss Le for coaching us.
