2022 – Regional Catholic Schools Debating Competition – Grand Finals

The grand finals of the 2022 Regional Catholic Schools Debating Competition was held last Wednesday, 15th of June. All regional schools, including Marist Penshurst, Marist Kogarah, De La Salle Revesby, Casimir College and Bethany, competed in the debates. Our Year 8, 9 and Senior team competed in the grand finals against Marist Penshurst, Marist Kogarah and De La Salle Revesby respectively. Our debaters faced tough competition in the finals and were the runners-up in each debate. Nevertheless, we are immensely proud of all our debaters for their outstanding achievement in reaching the finals. We would like to thank all student volunteers and teachers for all their assistance with the hosting of the event. This event concludes the debating season for 2022.
