 Debating Success

Last week end, our senior debating team, Isaac Rossetto, Patrick Donnelly and Giorgia Kilpatrick, travelled to Gympie for the Area Final of the Apex Debating competition. This round was a very tight and hard fought contest against Maleny State High School, a school with long history of debating success. The students argued the topic, "That organic farming should be banned". Xavier were lucky enough to be arguing the affirmative side of this topic....very difficult indeed.
The students, however, did an amazing job thanks to the expert guidance of their coach, Mr Wright and a whole lot of hard work. They won!!!
They now go on to the State Final at Mudjimba on the Sunshine Coast on Father's week end. They will argue the negative side of the topic, " That we should reduce women’s income tax proportional to the gender pay gap" and will be competing against Boonah State High School, again another school who have competed at State level a number of times. We wish Mr Wright and the students the very best of luck.
