Our Senior Debating teams had another round of challenges in Thursday night’s debate held at St Andrew’s College. There were many highs and lows, and each team performed incredibly well.
This week’s focus was on Social Media; our Year 11s, Thomas Richards, Simon Curnow, and Finn McColl, were tasked with affirming the motion that the New Zealand Government should ban TikTok. Despite a great performance, they lost the debate to St Andrew’s by a slim margin.
Our Year 13s, Todd Evans, Jared Talanoa, and Josh Macdonald, were tasked with negating the motion of the New Zealand Government buying Twitter. They outperformed Rangi Ruru on a number of key points, and successfully won the debate.
Well done gentlemen!
