As expected, it was a tough debate, but the girls were able to pull through arguing the negative on Australia should become a republic. Montana MacFarlane, Britt Franzmann, Joanne Joe and Skye Van Esch, coached by Stewart Moore, will now compete on stage at the Gold Coast Debating Open A Division Championship this Wednesday 21 August at 6.30pm at Bond University.
The team will go up against another group from All Saints Anglican School in another short preparation-style debate. Their arguments will be showcased for all other finalists and their supporters.
Somerset friends and supporters are encouraged to attend the evening – the debate is followed by canapes and an awards presentation.
If our team can win the Open A Championship, they will go on to the QDU Regional Championship, where they’ll face off against the winner of the Toowoomba Senior A division competition.
