Junior Debating WINNERS

Ethan, Sophie and Emily
Tuesday, 5 December 2017

Congratulations to our Junior Debating team - Ethan McCormick, Sophie Fooks and Emily Bennett. They WON the Auckland Junior Open Debating tournament last weekend, blitzing through the competition to take the tile in a final against Sacred Heart. Along the way they beat St Cuthberts and Diocesan in the quarter and semi-finals.


The format of the two day tournament allowed debaters only one hour to prepare their arguements, without access to the internet or other materials for research. The teams had to rely on their general knowledge, and critical thinking and speaking skills to sway the judges.


We are looking forward to seeing this strong team back in the debating competitions next year.
