The topic for this debate was “Politicians pays are justified” and we were the affirmative. They then competed against Kyabram the following week where they were narrowly defeated. The topic was “Raising the retirement age to 70 is needed” and our team argued the negative.
The junior debating team consisting of Tom Harris, Jessica Muir and Steph Warren they were narrowly defeated by St Josephs in the first round.
