Southland Secondary Schools' Competition

Clean sweep for Hargest in Southland Debating Competition.

The annual Southland Secondary Schools debating competition was held at SBHS on Sunday August 20th.  Normally Hargest wins one or two of the categories but this year we had a clean sweep, with us winning the Yr 9, Yr 10, Yr 11 and Senior categories.  

Debating captain, Georgia O'Connor, was in the winning Senior team and the day's results were a fitting outcome for a very focused student leader who left convalescence to attend the day.  She and the other seniors tutored the juniors supported by the teachers: Ms Ford, Ms Kerr, Mrs M Elder, Mr James, Mrs Benjamin, Mr and Mrs Fletcher.

A highlight for the day was an international student, Victor Denis from France, who filled in at late notice , for an absent student, ensuring that the team could participate in the day's competition.
