Pimpama High School Debating Teams Win First Round


King’s Christian College Pimpama had outstanding success in the first round of the Gold Coast Debating Competition at St Stephen’s College on Wednesday night. All four teams had wins! This is an impressive result and is testament to the hard work and resilience the students have displayed in the build-up to this round—especially in their final preparation.

The topic was ‘The Royals are still Relevant.’ All speakers spoke well and many students who were new to debating obtained invaluable experience. The teams were well supported by parents and siblings.
