2016 Debating Competition

4/10/2016

The 2016 Debating competition has come to a close with very impressive results from our two Mount Mee Teams.

On 7 September the debating team travelled to Kilcoy State School to compete in a formal debate competition against Mt Kilcoy, Delaney’s Creek, Kilcoy and Woodford. Trinity, Jeremy and Mathew competed against the Delaney’s Creek team and came home with a win by convincing the adjudicators that T.V. gambling advertisements should be banned. Chloe, Charley and Tamsin were the last to take the stage and also enjoyed a win against Mount Kilcoy by successfully arguing that keeping dolphins in captivity is acceptable.

Mrs Graham will be looking for a fresh new team of debaters from year 5/6 in 2017. If you would like to polish up your ability to reason, argue, think critically, work as a team and improve your public speaking skills then maybe debating is for YOU!
