In an exciting development in the school's public speaking and debating program, our Year 9/10 team have been pronounced Zone winners in the NSW Premier's Debating Challenge.
The team, comprising Daniel Mayo, Chloe Flynn, Aliya Picker and Aleiya Jolliffe, participated in a round robin style debating day under the supervision of Mrs Louise Turk in Term 2.
Their victorious performance against local schools Corrimal High School and Keira High School enabled them to progress through to the next level of competition at the Regional Debating Camp in August. Accompanied by experienced debater Chloe Clifford, the team will participate in a knockout draw with six other teams to determine the Regional Champion. This is a very well deserved result for an experienced team who have come so close in previous years. Onward and Upwards.
In other news, the campaign for the Year 7/8 competition kicks off this term. We wish the team, under the guidance and leadership of Mrs Casie Horton, great success in their debating efforts.
Year 9/10 Debating Coordinator
A special mention and congratulations to Aleiya Jolliffe who was selected to try-out for the Regional Team to compete at the State Debating Championships.
