Our Year 9 and 10 debaters did not disappoint in the tense final of the Senior School House Debating Competition today.

The debate topic took advantage of a plethora of interesting current affairs stories by focusing on the role of the media. The opening motion was: “This House Believes That the Media should Report the News, not Make the News”. The terms were well defined and the debate hotly contested with some well-argued points relating to the media’s handling of elections as well as fake news.
