After 7 preliminary rounds, and some very hotly contested quarter finals and semi finals, we now have found the two top teams in Premier Junior in 2014. Congratulations to Pinehurst and Westlake Boys 2 for making it through to the final.
The details for the final are:
Date: Wednesday 10 September
Time: Debate starts at 6.15
Where: Pinehurst College, in the Arena
All are welcome to come and support the two teams, and watch what we are sure will be a very high quality final.
Refreshments will be served following the debate.
Good luck to both teams!
A huge congratulations to Long Bay 3 for winning the Senior Open grade for 2014 last week!
Long Bay successfully negated the motion “this house regrets David Cunliffe’s apology for being a man” against WBHS 1 in a unanimous decision. The panel of adjudicators thought the debate was extremely close but were ultimately convinced by Long Bay’s view that men in general were culpable for the power structures that encouraged some men to commit domestic violence.
A huge thank you also to Mitchell Smitheram for all his hard work throughout the year as the grade convener. The grade would not have worked to seemlessly if it was not for Mitch’s hard work each week.
We look forward to your entries in Senior Open next year!
