It is very exciting to announce that our 9B debaters have made it through to the Semi Finals of the 2017 CSDA Debating Competition. This is a fantastic achievement for Margaret Carr, Anais Bouchier-Kotey and Ella Schrijvers. The girls were impressive last Friday at Santa Sabina in their Quarter Final debate against Bede Polding College South Windsor. The topic “That freedom of speech is more important than being polite” was strongly debated by both sides but, ultimately, our 9Bs were too good for the opposition.
This win has put St Clare’s through to the Semi Finals which we are co-hosting on Friday 21 July. Margaret, Anais and Ella will be debating Yr 9 St Scholastica’s Glebe. The debate will start at 7.30pm and we would like to see as many supporters as possible come along on the night.
