Southland Secondary Schools debating Competition held at JHC on September 6.
We hosted the competition at JHC and the uni student debaters travelled from Dunedin to adjudicate. It was a tremendously successful competition with our school taking three of the four cups.
After a forum initiated by the student leaders at JHC, it was decided the uni students would run a Southland development squad tutored through Google Classroom by their debaters. It is an exciting prospect because it will enhance debating in all the participating schools.
