The LPS debating team in book character costumes.

Our debating team, in only their second year of competition, has performed brilliantly yet again!  The team was involved in four debates last week, one on Tuesday and three on Thursday and they won all four!  These debates were against large primary schools, namely Hastings and Tacking Point Public schools.  These schools have been involved in debating for some time and have many children to draw on for their teams, so the achievement of our team in performing so well against them cannot be overstated. 

This means that our team has been declared the winner of Zone 9 of the North Coast region and will later compete against other zones, aiming towards the regional champion title.

This is a fabulous achievement by these children and has only been made possible by their dedication to their preparation, the training and support they have received over two years from Miss Zappia and the wonderful support they have received from their parents.
