Impromptu Debates – Round One

photo copy 20

This week we hosted the first round of the Central Otago impromptu debates. We entered several teams, including our brand new Year 8 team. The Year 8 team went against a Year 9 team – and won!

It was a really successful night with teams from all over Central Otago attending the competition. Apparently we had the most entries ever.

It was fantastic to see the energy and real thinking from all of the students. It was a cold night but the place was buzzing and heated up by student brain power. Some rooms were like saunas after the debates!

Our Year 8 team was really impressive and debating is such a great way to develop critical thinking skills. Here’s a few shots of them in action.
