This week the Year 5 Junior School Debating team consisting of Amelie Geddes, Isla Lifschen, Jack D’Emden and Mikaela Fulton participated in their fourth virtual debate with St Andrew’s Anglican School, Queensland.  The students debated the negative to the topic ‘The Australian flag should never be changed’.  They all spoke with confidence and, with the support of Helen Dosser (Director of Curriculum), and Alexandra Phillips and Ethan Hamilton (Year 12 students), constructed a coherent and well-researched argument to win the debating round!  They will now look forward to the next virtual debating challenge – well done team!
