To all students who were selected in a team for CSDA and Archdale debating. It is great to see skills of students  continuing to develop and strengthen every year. 


CSDA will be aiming to begin with the coin toss at 6:00pm this week. Please also note that due to the academic plenaries, CSDA Round 1, will be coordinated from GBC 1.02, rather than the DRC.

Archdale debating begins on Tuesday 21  May. Please note that this is also a designated academic plenary evening and students who are in the Archdale debating teams will not be able to participate in plenaries on this evening.

Evatt Youth NSW

Nominations have opened for Evatt Youth NSW for students in Years 9-12. This is a great opportunity for students who are interested in debating, public speaking, current affairs and diplomacy to get involved in a UN style debate. Students are able to work in pairs of their own choosing.

Loreto Normanhurst is unable to provide supervision at the events, however we will provide training and support here at school.

There are a number of dates and venues available to choose from. Students have been emailed an online nomination link as well as information about the competition. It would be great to see a number of students participating in this event. To nominate for this event, please follow this link. For more information, please see the EVATT Youth NSW website.

For further information, please contact us via   email.
