Our debating team added to their already outstanding year by winning the Taree School Education Area Debating Competition, with a win in the final on the penultimate day of last term. Travelling to Tuncurry Public School, the team of Samantha Kirkwood, Erin Moss, Darcy Howard and Jordan Potts once again claimed victory in a debate on the topic "Sport Encourages Bad Behaviour" against Hallidays Point Public School.
To say that our debaters had exceeded all expectations would be a large understatement. Once again, congratulations to the team and to Miss Zappia. While they are clearly very talented children, I can confidently assure you that they have worked very hard together for a long time, researching vast amounts of information and diligently honing their skills at every opportunity. The whole team has been an inspiration to us all here at school and they certainly are deserving of the success that has come their way.
