Debating team argue their way to Grand Finals
Last week members of Loreto Toorak’s Debating D Grade Team 1 successfully progressed to the Semi-Finals of the Debaters Association of Victoria competition. We are delighted to inform that yesterday Thursday 17 October the team won their semi-finals and are now preparing for the Grand Finals to be held at Caulfield Grammar next Thursday 24 October at 7pm.
They have been drawn on the negative side for the topic; “Australia should cease trade with countries that still use capital punishment” and will be competing against Melbourne High School. We commend the strong, supportive teamwork and passionate debating skills the students have displayed throughout and send our best wishes to Eleanor Martin, Alex Tarraran, Elena Chiam, Elizabeth Negline and Eleanor O’Brien.
