Debaters dominate

13/06/2012

​Our year 9 debating team has once again met the challenge offered by participating in the 2012 Queensland Debating Union's competition.  Caboolture SHS has been ably represented by Abigail James, Jetta Ferguson-Male, Shannai Johnston and Shazura Lawrence.  The team has swept all before them and progressed to the finals, storming through the preliminary rounds undefeated.  Along the way they have notched up several 7 point victories (on a similar scale to winning an AFL game by 100, or Queensland beating NSW by 40 in the State of Origin).  They have defeated schools including Bracken Ridge SHS, St Paul's School, St Patrick's College and Sandgate District SHS, winning arguments from advocating that bike helmets should be compulsory, insisting that all citizens should pass a test on Australia's system of government before being eligible to vote (try getting your head around that topic!), to calling for the ban of all sports involving the use of animals.

The team and coaches, Jayne Hooper and Rebecca Smith, eagerly await news of the finals that commence in term 3.  We wish them the best of luck!
