Debating: Round 4
All our team members have done the College proud this season with their commitment to practice, performance and presentation in the inter-school competition conducted by Debating SA. Next, the much anticipated Exchange Debate with Assumption on the topic: "Sport has lost its way".
Our Year 10 Blue team showed the value of persistence and commitment with a strong victory over Marryatville High School. Ryan Klaffer, Austin McClure and Thomas Fritz negated the proposition, "Australia should switch to nuclear power", with all members speaking to full time - a demanding task for a one-card debate. Austin and Thomas produced convincing rebuttal. The growing confidence and skill of the boys was particularly noticeable. Ashley Lleshi was the Timekeeper.
