9/10 Debating Team 2020

Alex Letts, Laura Williams, Shafin Salim and Declan Eshman

The 9/10 Debating Team for 2020 consisted of Year 9 students; Laura Williams, Alex Letts, Declan Eshman and Shafin Salim. We had many close debates, and Coonabarabran put up insightful and thoughtful arguments each round. We faced some challenging and controversial topics in each round of debating. The team fought hard under difficult circumstances with the debates being held via Zoom only. The 9/10 Debating Team finished our debating season with a 2/3 win record and should be commended for their perseverance and dedication. The team were able to accept feedback with maturity and the ability to implement what they learned in the rounds that followed. The team represented the school to the highest degree and should be congratulated for their efforts. The team is very much looking forward to debating again in 2021.​
