Our debating team performed to a high standard throughout this school year. The boys took part in four competitive debates, reaching the quarter final of the Concern School Debating Competition. Led by their captain, the team members demonstrated greater and greater skill in the art of debating with each outing. Unfortunately, the team narrowly lost their quarter final following an excellent performance. All of the debates took place on Zoom, with the debating team using the school library as a venue for meetings and broadcasting their debates. Our fifth and fourth class groups have tuned into these debates and the next generation has no doubt been inspired. We look forward to participating in competitive debating again in 2024/2025 and we are certain that all of the boys in sixth class have benefited from an in-depth introduction to the process of effective debating. Our thanks are extended to Ms Kavanagh for mentoring the team this year.
