From the Convenor of Debating, Cassandra Foster
Last Friday was the last preliminary round of the CSDA Debating competition. All teams are congratulated on both their successes and their good sportsmanship in defeat. We had a successful season overall. Particularly, in Round 1 where Waverley won every debate against St Clare’s.
Congratulations to Year 8 who won five of six of their debates. On Tuesday night they debated against Mount St Benedict’s College in the Elimination 1 round. They won and are now progressing to the Elimination 2 round this Friday at OLMC Parramatta. They are congratulated on their eloquence in speaking as well as their comprehensive knowledge of world events and topical issues.
The Year 8 students who have debated during the season are: Angus Anthony, Nicholas Kimber, Ben Schrijvers and Achilles Zanapalis. The finalist debaters are: Conor Ryan, Mackenzie Flitcroft and Daniel McSweeney. These students have trained hard with their coaches Miss Walker and James to get to this far and regardless of how they go on Friday, they have represented Waverley College with pride.
