Both debating teams competed in the final round of the round-robin Rotary Debating League championships.

The junior team opposed the motion: This House Would Change the Race of Santa Clause Every Year. Putting up a good fight, Megan Ingram, Aashiqah Regal and Aquilah Regal  narrowly lost.

While the senior team proposed the motion: This House Would Legalize All Recreational Drugs. Thaakiyah Ryklief, Jordan King and Lisa Abrahams with newly learnt skills gave their most structured and responsive debate yet. However, it appeared that by the second half of the debate that side opposition had a very different case to argue. With new clashes entering right at the end of the debate, the girls did their very best, but could not persuade the adjudicators.

We wish both teams the best of luck as selections for the knock-out rounds are to be announced shortly.
