    House Debating

    House Debating - Years 7 and 8 

    At lunchtime on Tuesday 27th August, 22 Year 7 and 8 students participated in the SICG Junior House Debating Competition. The topic for the Elimination Round was: That school uniforms should be compulsory.

    Students were only given the topic the day before, so everyone did really well creating and presenting strong arguments without referring to lots of notes. It was fantastic to see so many passionate junior debaters!

    Congratulations to the best speakers across the four debates: Laura McMahon, Bisto Benny, Jaymi Woodfine, Brianna Brew, Charlotte Gray, Ross de Lange and Thomas Emery.

    Well done to all students involved – we hope to see you in future debates! The finals will be held this Friday lunchtime in the Xavier Centre – so come along and support your peers!

    Year 7 Finalists: Bradman Vs Elliot

    Year 8 Finalists: Fraser Vs Bradman

    We would like to thank Ms Hodge, Ms O’Brien and Ms Dart for helping organise this initiative, and the adjudicators for the debates: Mr Tod, Ms Etherington, Ms Clark and Year 11 student William Bothe. We also enjoyed putting our experience at DAV debating to good use by adjudicating one of the debates and were amazed by what our Year 7 and 8 students can do!
