 Debating News

Last Tuesday evening marked the start of the 2015 Apex Debating season in the Wide Bay region. Xavier, once again, fielded a pleasing number of teams in each of the age categories. Unfortunately, our senior debaters will not be involved in the Apex competition this year due to a lack of participation by other schools. Instead, they will be involved in an afternoon competition which will run along the lines of the Jesuit Debating Competition.
The first round, the junior round, hosted by Xavier College, featured participants from years 9 and 10. The topic for this round was, “That is in the interest of the public to know details of a politician’s private life,” a controversial and challenging topic to say the least.
This Tuesday evening our year 7 and 8 students will travel to Aldridge State High School for their first round arguing the topic, “That buying bread and milk in bulk will increase your chance of surviving a natural disaster.” We wish these students all the very best of luck, especially our year 7’s who are involved in competition debating for the first time.
 
Below is a list of our debaters and their coaches for this year.
