The Round 1 Gold Coast Debating Competition results are in, and it has been a strong start for Somerset! Particularly exciting is our ‘clean sweep’ in the Junior B division – our brand-new Year 7s all won their first ever competitive debate.

Special mention should also go to our Open A Year 10 team, who won their first debate despite the Open A division usually consisting of Year 11 and 12 students exclusively. The team achieved this win despite the illness of two out of three team members, and such wouldn’t have been possible without the generous help of Year 12 debater Skye Van Esch, who stood in for one of the unwell students.

Well done to all involved in Round 1.
