The 2021 Auckland Schools Debating season has kicked off with a fantastic win for our premier senior team. Grace Russell, Evelynn Turin and James Boland are competing this year in the top grade, Premier Advanced, which features 35 of the best school debating teams from across Auckland. Last Wednesday night, they convincingly beat Mount Roskill Grammar by arguing that universities and schools should ban sports scholarships to prevent the exploitation of student athletes.
James, Evelynn and Nicole Hua also placed second in a pre-season tournament earlier this month, which was attended by over 50 Auckland schools.
We are so proud of our Senior debaters and are looking forward to seeing how all our teams go as the season progresses.
