Well done to our Year 6 debating team who took part in a workshop last Friday to further develop their debating skills. Thank you to the parents for providing transport and to Mrs Derricott for organising this event.
Congratulations to our wonderful Year 6 debaters, Ember, Celeste, Oscar and Jamie, who competed against Waratah PS today and won! A terrific achievement and lovely birthday surprise for our debating teacher, Mrs Derricott.
Congratulations to Sarah, who has been selected to be a part of the Regional Premier’s debating team. Sarah was chosen for the position after impressing a number of debating teachers and adjudicators during competitions this year. Sarah will join a team of students from the Hunter/Central Coast to take part in training and representing our school and region in future debates. Well done!
Today our year 5 and 6 debaters took part in Round 3 of the Equity Debate Competition against Merewether Public School. Both teams had impressive arguments for an interesting and challenging topic – Hollywood has a lot to answer for – but it was Tighes Hill who were the winners today! Well done to Allan, Mitch, Amy and Jorji who will now commence to the semi finals of the competition. A big thank you also goes to our wonderful Miss Beker, who works so hard to make our public speaking and debating competitions a success!
This term has seen many of our OC students take part in a variety of Debating competitions including the Premiers Debating competition and the Equity Debating competition. Earlier this week our Year 5 girls participated in a debate against Lambton school. The debate topic was ‘that Australian models under the age of 18 should be banned’. The girls were successful arguing against this topic and won the debate. Well done!
