On Wednesday October 12 Georgia in Year 8 and Isaac in Year 7 represented St John Bosco College in the Semi Finals of the British Parliamentary Debate Competition at Perth Modern School.
The participation of our Debate Team in this competition represents the hard work of all our debaters both those who were able to go to Perth Modern and the other members of our team who helped them hone their skills throughout the year.
All students who took part were given a debate topic about the conditions in the modern workplace and given only 30 minutes to prepare. Despite the need to prepare a full debate in a very short space of time, Georgia and Isaac were able to present their debate in a clear and logical manner while following the strict rules of the competition.
The arguments presented by our team combined both logic and a strong ability to understand the world from someone else’s point of view while allowing all members of the audience to follow.
This competition will be the first of many opportunities for Bosco students to represent our College and take part in high level debates with students from other schools across the Perth Metro area in the years to come.
Joy in Debate
