Debating

May 15, 2018 at 12:13 pm

Earlier this month, our debating teams went up against Heights College. Our senior topic was that ‘Jobs should be contracted to developing nations’. Taking the affirmative side, the RGGS seniors spoke with great passion and persuasion to defeat the Heights College team in a thrilling debate. The arguments ebbed and flowed and our phenomenal debaters, Kailee Butcher, Taylor Busbridge and Brianna Austin left the audience in no doubt that jobs must be contracted to developing nations. These girls are undefeated in the competition and as per the adjudicators comments are a “force to be reckoned with.”

Our junior team were very narrowly defeated, in the thinnest of margins. A huge congratulations must go to Jordan Austin, Mia Pienaar and Madison Usher who put up a great debate. Their topic was that ‘Sport is not sport anymore’.

The next debate will be held here in the RGGS Museum on May 22 and will see our junior and senior teams take on Emmaus College. All are welcome to come and support our amazing debaters.
