Debating Update


​On Wednesday, 17 May the Year 8 debating teams met at Genesis College to participate in the third round of the QDU debating competition.  The topic for the round was ‘That we should force all students who persistently bully other students to be home-schooled.’  We were the Negative Team and therefore argued against this topic.

Team 8.1 competed against St Paul’s School. It was a very well argued and close debate with the Albany Creek State High School team just two points from a successful prosecution of the negative case. All speakers performed well and the team were well prepared by Ben and Tout, current Year 12 students.

Team 8.2 competed against St Columban’s College. Special mention goes to Year 8 student Georgia who has been debating up with the Year 9 team this year who also reached out to help her peers in this debate.  All speakers performed very well but unfortunately we lost by just a single point.
