Debating Success

Pimpama

In a clean sweep, reminiscent of the solitary round prior to COVID in 2020, all four debating teams had wins in Round Two (April 28). This is a tremendous result given the nature of the moot and the limited preparation that we had. The moot was that “Cancel Culture is a Positive Social Development”. The teams, opposition and results are as follows:
