Junior Premier Debating

Congratulations to the Junior Premier debating team on their win in Round 5 of the Wellington Speaking Union Intercollegiate Debating Competition.  

Catherine Ramoo (Yr 9), Simone Lenora (Yr 9) and Samantha Samaniego (Yr 10) successfully negated the moot “That prime-time sports on television should give equal time to women’s and men’s sports”.  Affirming the moot was St Catherine’s College. Special thanks to Simone for stepping into the team at very short notice when we were one debater short.

The team has now completed the five preliminary round debates, winning 4 of the 5 debates.
