Regional Debate Competition - April 2/3

Last weekend secondary school debate teams from around Otago and Southland competed in the Regional competition.

This year was a little different as due to COVID restrictions the competition was held through Zoom. 

St Hilda's had two teams in the competition and they had some very close debates throughout Saturday. The final debate of day one ended up being against one another.

While neither team made the semi final round they performed to a high standard in all of their six debates which is an impressive amount of debating in a day and a half.

Huge congratulations to Lily Knox who was selected in the regional team to compete at the National competition later in the year and Zara Geddes who was selected for the Otago development squad.
