Debating Success

Our students travelled to Perth College for their first debating competition.

The Year 8 to 10 St George's teams debated against experienced students who have been in the competition for much longer than them and achieved some exceptional results.

The Year 7 debaters - Jake, Michael and Olivia all spoke with confidence and showed enthusiasm.

The Year 8 debaters - Chantelle, Lucas and Jess won their debate decisively ensuring the other team could not argue against their case.

The Year 9 team - Sofia, Elysse and Mason presented a cohesive argument with a strong subject matter, rebutting each major point presented, winning their first debate.

The Year 10 team - Amy, Nick and Georgia overcame nerves and inexperience to defeat the opposition thanks to their diligent preparation and the presentation of their case.

Congratulations to all students involved and special thanks to their coach, Miss Evans, for organising the teams and Mr Lim and Ms Kirton for their support.
