After our Year 10 debating team had to step down from this event due to a conflict with camp, Year 9 eagerly took on the challenge. Our team put in a lot of work preparing for the big day and it paid off early with a convincing win against Green Point Christian College. The boys then carried this momentum into their second debate and came away with another big win against St Peter’s Catholic College which ensured their entry into the final.
In the final debate, our team were given an hour to prepare for their topic and after a close back and forth with Green Point Christian College they were named runners up. Congratulations to William Lynch, William Conners, Lawrence Ure, Max Bayss, and Matthew Kirkland on their ability to think critically about a range of difficult topics and articulate their ideas in a mature and sophisticated manner.
