From Director of Co-curriculum, Patrick Brennan
The Catholic School Debating Association recently announced that Waverley College teacher, Mr Dominic Hearne will adjudicate the State Finals.
The Catholic Schools’ Debating Competition takes in schools from Albion Park in the South to Penrith and Windsor in the West to Palm Beach in the North, and covers 93 Catholic Secondary schools and colleges.
The Year 7 – 11 teams who take out the Sydney Metropolitan Competition held between April and July are then invited to the State finals. This sees the top five teams in the Metropolitan competition battle against the top five teams in the country competitions. This region draws from Murwillimbah in the North to Bathurst in the West to Nowra in the South.
The adjudicators for this event are selected from across the State, based on experience and form over the recent season.
The College congratulates Mr Hearne on his appointment and the ongoing contribution he makes to this important co-curricular activity at Waverley College. No doubt the feedback he can provide our students based on his experiences at the top level will assist them when debating returns in winter 2017.
