Year 7 Debating

Excellent ambassadors showing fantastic debating skills

On Tuesday 25th July, four Year 7 students traveled to St Catherine's in Singleton to compete in the Diocesan Debating competition. 

The boys had a very convincing win in their first round against St Joseph's Aberdeen, debating the affirmative on the topic "All students should be required to volunteer in the community". The boys then progressed to the semi-final where they were narrowly beaten by St Mary's, Gateshead. 

The boys were excellent ambassadors for San Clemente, displaying not only excellent public speaking and critical thinking skills, but they were also praised for their ability to work as a cohesive unit in a team. Congratulations boys! A big thank you also to Ms Rae who also assisted in preparing the boys.
