WADL Preliminary Finals

I am very pleased to announce that 3 of our 11 Debating teams have qualified for the WADL Preliminary Finals to be held at Perth Modern on Wednesday 28 July! This is a great result for our school and is an improvement on last year’s results.
There is one novice team who have qualified (Year 8 – Howard Jennings coach) and 2 Junior teams (Year 9/10 – coached by myself)
Novice team: Asha James, Rose Troon, Amy Lu, Clare Hogg, Elisabeth Metcalf.
Junior Team 1: Stephanie Hronsky, Jacinta Pavisich, Kascia Pavisich, Caitlyn Butler.
Junior Team 4; Catherine Whitely, Clare Metcalf, Peter Loreck, Giacomo Campbell
These students have been faithful in their practice attendance at lunch times, they have attended Debating workshops and have worked collaboratively in group sessions as well as communicating with each other on forums to prepare for their debates which were conducted with great confidence and poise. Newman College can be very proud of these students. Please congratulate and celebrate with them if you have an opportunity to do so.
Kathryn Wills, Debating Coordinator
