BRSHS Debating


​Last week we kicked off the 2017 debating season, with the Years 9 and 11 teams competing on Wednesday night.

The Year 11s were narrowly defeated (by one point!) but the Year 9s were victorious against Albany Creek SHS. Well done to all students who participated, particularly Nova, Lizzie, Elijah, Ella, Imogen, and Jack.

On Thursday the Debating Workshop was held in order to give Debating students important information about the skills and procedures relating to Debating. We have a large number of students signed up to Debating this year – almost 30 across Years 7 to 12. The Debating Workshop was a tiring  but very productive day.

This week we say Good Luck to the Year 10 team, which consists of Greta, Ainslee, Emily, and Jachin. They will be representing our school in a verbal battle against St Columban’s this Wednesday night. Our Year 10s need to prove that people should undergo an intelligence test before being allowed to vote, which should be a very interesting argument.

Well done to all students who are participating in Debating this year, and good luck to all the teams throughout the competition.
