ISDA Debating

Debating season has begun and once again, I am astounded by the amount of interest and enthusiasm of the boys of the Junior School. 

I would like to congratulate Benjamin, Oscar, Benjamin, Layth, and Emerson who have been selected to represent the Junior School forming our ISDA Debating team. 

The ISDA competition takes place Friday afternoons after school. Teams are only given one hour to prepare for their debate under the guidance of a coach. Last week was the boys’ first debate, this year occurring virtually over Zoom. They argued the negative for the topic ‘All public transport should be free’. In a very close debate against Redlands, our boys were unfortunately unsuccessful. I was so very proud of how confidently each speaker spoke and worked together as a team. 

I want to wish our team all the best for the remainder of the season. It is a privilege to work with such a wonderful group of enthusiastic boys who are keen to learn and improve. I am eager to see what this season has installed for us.
