Congratulations: FED Senior A Debating Team Reach Quarter Finals

On Friday evening, 14 May 2021, the Trinity Senior A FED Debating team went up against SCECGS Redlands in the FED competition quarterfinals. This is an incredible achievement. The team, comprised of M. Nguyen (11Yo), J.  Sowmi (11We), R. Briscoe (11Du) and V. Iyer (11WJ), was made up entirely of Year 11 students. This meant that they were debating above their Year level. Moreover, the ongoing situation with Coronavirus pandemic meant that they were debating online over Zoom for the whole season. These, alongside many other challenges, did not stop the Senior A team from being the only Trinity debating team to make it to the quarterfinals across both FED and ISDA competitions. Going into this debate, all the members knew the debate would be tough.

Unfortunately, the Senior As were defeated by Redlands that night. It was a close debate, with our Year 11s coming close to making it to the semi-finals in a predominantly Year 12 division, but our opponents came out on top. This has nonetheless been an impressive achievement from our team and, if you see these boys around, be sure to congratulate them.
