History Debating Semi-Final

On Friday 1st of November, the Year 11 History Debating team travelled to Tara Anglican School for Girls to debate in the semi-final round of the J.A. Thompson History Debating Competition. The team spent several weeks preparing for the topic, “That Chernobyl was the greatest disaster in Soviet history”. In preparation for this topic, the students enhanced their critical thinking skills as they were required to grapple with various complex historical interpretations. The team debated with great flair and confidence but unfortunately lost in a close debate. 

I would like to commend the Year 11 team for their unwavering dedication to history debating over the past two years. They have consistently represented the College with pride and have demonstrated remarkable passion and commitment to the study of History.
