On Wednesday afternoon, Waverley debaters from Years 7 – 12 competed in the final round of CSDA (Catholic Schools’ Debating Association) against Champagnat. In an impressive feat, Waverley came away with the win in all year groups — a fantastic way to end the competition.
The adjudicators commended our students on the strength of their arguments and rebuttals, as well as the skill with which these were articulated. The coaches would like to congratulate all students involved, and thank them for their decorum and sophistication this term.
Thanks also to the students who volunteered their time to help chair the debates — Alejandro Zanapalis, Brandon Reid, Ricardo Zanapalis — and those who supported our teams in the audience.
We look forward to resuming competition next term, whilst also celebrating such a strong end to CSDA.
Waverley is so proud of each and every one of our debaters, and their commitment to Debating, week in, week out. We too, celebrate your brilliant achievement!
