INTER-SCHOOL DEBATING COMPETITION - ROUND 4
The fourth round of the interschool debate competition took place on 17 May at the Haileybury City Campus. Students had only an hour to prepare for topics relating to real world economic and political issues. This tested their ability to formulate robust ideas under time constraints and speak on a topic for 6-8 minutes each with minimal notes! Well done to the B Grade team for winning their event. Special mention to Zoe, Ellen and Neeharika for being awarded best speaker in their respective events. An honourable mention was awarded to Lucy for her exceptional role as third speaker.
In Semester 2, VCASS will be hosting an intraschool tournament open to the Years 7-9 students. This program will train junior students to compete in the style of the formal debate competition. Details will soon be made available for students to join the VCASS Debate Club in Semester 2.
