Round 5 CSDA Debate: Waverley v St Clare’s

Year 8 team - Lincoln Tanner, Yannick Hott and James Peate

Year 8 Debating Team in 2021

On Friday evening Waverley competed against St Clare’s in the fifth round of the CSDA competition. Students were given topics ranging from socio-political issues about youth detention centres to Australia’s economic influence on the international world stage. 

All teams debated confidently, showing great poise in delivering their arguments and rebuttals. Overall, an incredibly successful evening with Waverley winning debates in Years 8, 9, 11 and 12. 

Well done to all teams, and I look forward to Round 6 this Friday 4 June against St Mary’s Cathedral College.
