Teenagers Love a Good Argument, Debating Kicks Off

7-8 March 2016

Our senior and junior debating teams took part in their first challenges this week. Both teams made strong arguments. The seniors moot was “that academic streaming should be banned in secondary schools” and won convincingly. The junior topic was “should Waitangi day be replaced by New Zealand day” and they also made some perceptive and affirming points.

Both teams reported to have had a positive and experience.

Great work teams!
