This term our Year 8 debating team adjudicated a Catholic Primary School debating competition. Four teams competed from the local area: St Kieran’s Manly Vale, St John the Baptist Freshwater, St Cecilia’s Balgowlah and St Mary’s Manly. Our girls did an outstanding job watching the debates via Zoom and providing extremely thorough and professional feedback. Topics included “that pets should be allowed on public transport” and “that country life is better than city life”. Well done and thank you to the following girls for their participation: Ruby N, Rose F, Audrey R, Ava N, Tekara S, Isabella M and Samantha W.
