Debating news

Arnika Hazelwood —

Our Debating teams continued to impress this year.

In April our LPHS 1 team came top in the Otago region in the Otago regional competitions.  Jordan Hannon and Alexander Sun were selected for the Otago representative team.  Jordan won Best Speaker.  

Hope Huang, Bianca Van der Haegen and Jenny Reid are in the Otago Junior Development squad.   All of our team members engaged well and presented reasoned arguments.
