Newman Debating Novice Team UPDATE

Updated article as at 21 August:
The Newman 4 Novice Debating Team (Year 8) debated against Perth Modern at Shenton College on Tuesday night, August 20th. They were taking part in the Semi Final of the WADL Interschool Competition. Although the Newman team conducted an excellent debate the adjudicators judged in favour of the Perth Modern Team so Newman 4 will not be participating in the Grand Final next week. The Newman 4 team, consisting of Mark Wilson, Jacinta Pavisich, Kascia Pavisich and Stephanie Hronsky are to be congratulated on an excellent season of debating and on becoming one of the final four teams in the Novice section of the competition. This is an outstanding effort! Well done!
