The 2016 Debating Season concluded last night with the final Year 7 debates. MSM’s two Year 7 teams completed a true “Grand Slam” with wins in their first experience of short preparation debating. This was a test of what they had learned during the season and their ability to prepare a case with no access to any resources, research or coaches, in one hour.
Despite their understandable anxiety, all students spoke with confidence and conviction in presenting their arguments and rebutting the opposition. This confidence has been evident all season; well done Home Room teachers for your work with the students in this area.
