ACU Debating Cup

This week students from Years 7-10 have competed in the Royal South Street ACU Debating Cup.

For our Year 7 and 8 debaters, this was their very first competitive debate. They should be beyond proud of their efforts, they spoke with confidence and worked well as a group. Our teams went down to some strong opponents but learnt a lot from the experience to apply to their future debates. A big thank you to Mr Nathaniel Winfield for coaching the Year 9 and 10 debaters.
