Should our teams be successful in the initial rounds, the semi-finals and finals will be held on Wed, 08/06/2022 and Wed, 15/06/2022 respectively.

We are proud of all our debaters competing in the competition against Marist Kogarah in Round 1 of the competition this week. 4 out of our 5 debating teams won their debate this week – Year 7, 8, 9 and Seniors.

We would also like to thank all student volunteers and staff for assisting with hosting the event, which would not be such a success without their kind assistance. We also thank our Librarian, Mrs Simonetta, and our ex-students, Jade Lozanovski and Ayva Palmer, for adjudicating the debates. A big thank you too to all parents who came along to support our debaters.
