The debating season is well underway and this year the format is a little different. Throughout this term our Year 9 and 10 debating team will participate in five rounds of virtual debates, with the two highest scoring teams in each round progressing to a knockout stage. Last Tuesday we had our first debate against The Scots College and with a comfortable win the boys are sitting on top of the ladder.
Congratulations to Jayden Redfern, Daniel Herd, and Jivesh Shonak (Year 9), and Ikey Allen and Cameron Shaw (Year 10) on their outstanding performance. It is no easy feat to be able to stand up and argue a topic for six minutes with only an hour to prepare. Their teamwork was admirable, and their speaking skills exemplary. Well done on a great start to the competition!
