Debating – Junior Premier

Congratulations to the Junior Premier Debating Team on their win in Round 3 of the Wellington Speaking Union Intercollegiate Debating Competition.

Samantha Samaniego (Yr 10), Catherine Ramoo (Yr 9), and Ariana Ngarimu (Yr 10) successfully affirmed the moot “That GST should be removed from fruit and vegetables”.  Negotiating the moot was Kapiti College.  The Best Speaker award went to Samantha.  Thanks to Sinead Riden (Yr 9) who was Chairperson for the debate.

The team has made noticeable progress from the start of the debating season, developing confidence in speaking and forming convincing arguments.  Good luck for the rest of the season!
