Congratulations to our 4 debating teams who traveled to Lindisfarne on Friday afternoon to undertake round three of the HICES debating competition. All students that have been involved in the competition have presented themselves with distinction and I congratulate them on their efforts to present their case, speak in front of an audience and work as a team. I am very pleased to announce that our Stage 3 team was undefeated and have been crowned Northern Region Champions. They will now progress to the zone finals. Thank you to Mrs Sue McLintock, Mrs Karen Bergan, Mrs Jess Raguse and Mr Chris McCotter for their involvement in this new initiative and the support, encouragement and guidance they have provided the students.
