Our debating teams really shone at their first competition. Interestingly though, it wasn't just their well-prepared speeches or great presentation skills that were clearly evident. What we also saw was:
The highlight of the evening, after witnessing all of this, was hearing the adjudicator's reaction to finding out this was our students' first time debating.

We congratulate the students on their wonderful work, their parents for their fabulous support and our amazing teachers for making it all happen so effortlessly. Needless to say, we are all excited for the next debate in August.
