Congratulations to the 7B Archdale team who this week participated in the Semi-Finals for Archdale Debating. The girls were up against PLC Pymble and did a superb job. It was a very, very close debate and sadly, the girls lost by just a few points. The topic was “That we should ban all advertising targets at children”. The following students are to be commended for their commitment to their team:
- Isabella Tesoriero
- Krisshvi Naarayanan
- Chelsea Earle
- Ella Khoury
The Archdale Grand Finals will take place at Abbotsleigh, with debates starting at 6:15pm. I encourage those of you who are interested in debating or would like to just watch a great debate, to come along.
This coming week we will take a group of students to Sydney University’s Women’s Debating Day. This one day event will allow students to hone their debating skills as they compete in a round robin. We wish those students the best of luck.
For further information, please contact the Oratory Team.
