Affirmative and a negative – debating successes continue

Round 4 of the Gold Coast Debating Competition was held on Wednesday 1 June with the short prep debate on “Smoking should be banned”. Congratulations to our Year 10 debating teams who competed and won their respective debates.  One of our QAHS Intermediate B teams will also be debating on 15 June, in the catch-up round at Helensvale State High School. Spectators are always welcome and encouraged.

Special thanks must be sent to Mme. Soulard for her support and encouragement of the teams on the night, and Ayla Tartic who has been assisting with adjudicating.

Next term, our first debate will be on 20 July when the teams enter the Round of 16 competition.  Our Intermediate A team (pictured L-R) of Isabella Kruger, Gloria Murray, Stephanie Hall, Italia Malik, and Tayla Painter will enter this competition as yet unbeaten. Good luck to all teams on the upcoming competition.
