To the 7B and 8A teams who will be participating in the CSDA Grand Finals tonight!  The debates will be held at Bede Polding College, South Windsor and will start at 6pm. We would love to see a strong Loreto Normanhurst audience  supporting our girls.

Frances O’Brien Ella McKenzie
Maya Yogesvaran Maia Henville
Grace Camilleri Loren Bambagiotti
Ashleigh Chapman Michelle Hoffman


All CSDA teams are to be commended for their outstanding effort and sportsmanship displayed this season!


Special Mention

To the 12A CSDA team who unfortunately did not win in their semi-final last week, but have consistently made it to finals through many years of high school debating!  Congratulations to Stephanie Sardinha, Katherine Morris and Ella Gray on their commitment to Oratory@LN and to their coach, Andrea McDuff.



To the Archdale teams who won 5 out of 7 debates this week against Queenwood. An outstanding effort! Please remember that this week is the last week of rounds and Round 7 will be held at Loreto Normanhurst. Students are asked to email Mr Steve Gibson if they have any questions or concerns about debating for this week.


For any further information or questions you may have regarding oratory, please email the Oratory Team.
