Year 10 History Debating Competition

On 10 June, four Year 10 students travelled to Hinchinbrook to compete in the History Debating Competition. Caitlin, Chloe, Dana and Valantia competed against three other schools; Sefton High School, St. Paul’s Grammar and Good Samaritan College in this competition. As the first Bethany debaters ever to take part in this History Debating Competition, it was a great achievement that we claimed victory in one of our debates over St. Paul’s. Also, a big thanks to Miss. Grimm, who greatly assisted us in our debate preparation over the past 7 weeks and accompanied us to Hinchinbrook. We are all extremely grateful for the experience and were very happy to have been given the opportunity to participate in this competition

“The history debating competition was a great experience for all of us, and we felt a great sense of achievement when we won our first debate. We had all put a lot of hard work, time, effort and research into preparing for this day which resulted in both an enjoyable and successful day for everyone.”

– Chloe Allcorn, Year 10


“I hadn’t debated in years but this experience was really enjoyable and I’m glad that I was able to take part in the History Debating Competition. All the lunch times we dedicated to debate preparation was worth it and I’m really happy of what we achieved together as a team.”
