On Tuesday 3rd December, the Western Region Year 7/8 Debating Championship team consisting of Fred Kearney, Alex Letts, Declan Eshman and Laura Williams travelled to Sydney to compete in the State Finals held at The Women’s College, University of Sydney.
The Quicksmart Numeracy and MULTILIT participants celebrated the successful completion of the programs on Tuesday 26th November with the presentation of certificates, followed by the cutting of a cake to acknowledge their achievements.
Last Tuesday the Year 8 Debating Team of Fred Kearney, Alex Letts, Declan Eshman, Laura Williams all travelled to Mudgee to compete against Mudgee High School in the Regional final of the Premiers Debating Challenge.
The topic for the debate was- That students in Years 7 and 8 should be forced to have a paid job for three hours each weekend. Our team was the affirmative on the day and argued very strongly. They are to be congratulated on their remarkable effort and the way they represented Coonabarabran High School.
They will now travel to Sydney University in December for the Championships of this challenge.
Congratulations and well done!
Good Luck in Sydney Team…
