Conclusion of preliminary rounds

The preliminary rounds for all our competitions have now concluded.

We hope you and your teams have all enjoyed debating in 2016 as much as we have.  It has been great to see such high quality debating, and significant improvement by all teams throughout the year. All students deserve congratulations for the effort they have put in this year and the improvements they have made.

Thank you

We would like to thank all the host school teachers for kindly hosting the grade our grades this year. The competition cannot operate without the support from schools, and we greatly appreciate the commitment that they have made this year.

In addition, a huge thank you is owed to all the teachers/coaches/parents who have assisted their teams this year through coaching, supporting and transporting the students to the debates each round.

Announcement of the break

The break will be released at the end of the July school holidays, on 27 July 2016. Dates for the finals round can be found in our calendar. If there are any teams that would not be available to participate in the knock out rounds, please let us know.  A separate email with all the details for the break arrangements will be sent out to all teams on 27 July.

We warmly encourage all students to continue with debating in 2017, and good luck to those teams who make it through to the final rounds.
