Debating begins for 2018

This week saw the commencement of the Tasmanian Debating Union’s Southern Schools competition.

As in previous years, we have a strong presence in this competition, with teams representing each of the year levels.

Congratulations to all students on their efforts last night at Taroona High School, where the issues included local council numbers, the future of poker machines, and political donations.

As one adjudicator put it: “Many adults would find it difficult to speak for five minutes in front of an audience”, so they should be very proud.

Good luck to the Year 7 team, as their first debate is scheduled for next Wednesday 21 March at St Michael’s Collegiate.

Mr Ben Fulton, Debating Coordinator
