Our Senior Debating Team comprised of James Boland, Grace Russell and Evelynn Turin has been soaring this year in the Advanced Open grade of the Auckland Schools Debating competition.

We are thrilled to let you know that next week they will face Carmel College in the Advanced Open Grand Final!

After in-person debating was cancelled due to Covid 19, the team debated online and had an enormously successful run, losing only one debate in the main competition. They went on to win the Octofinals, Quarterfinals and Semi-finals in which they convincingly beat Lynfield College opposing the moot "That this House would allocate places at schools through a lottery system rather than by school zones." 

This is a remarkable achievement and of course, we wish them all the very best. 

We are very proud indeed of their success.

Senior Debating Team: Evelynn Turin, James Boland and Grace Russell
