Debating success at Abbotsleigh


 L-R: Coach Georgia Chahoud, Phoebe Luu, Alexandra Gavagna, Meredith Wang, Emma Yap, Sophie Cheung and Charlotte Allan. 

On Friday 15 September, the Primary A Schools Debating Network (SDN) Team was victorious in the SDN Grand Final.

The challenging topic for the debate was That All  Art and Music Lessons Should be Replaced by STEM-based Subjects.

It was a close contest against Roseville College; however, our Primary A girls provided convincing arguments and rebuttal points as the negative team for the topic. It is a huge achievement for a team to progress to the Grand Final.

All girls in both the Primary A and Primary B Teams are applauded on their commitment, enthusiasm and teamwork.

Congratulations to the following girls and their coach on such a successful term of SDN Debating:
