Our college debating team is going strong, having won two recent debates in an interschool competition run by the Debaters Association of Victoria.
We actually have two teams this year, with members meeting on Mondays in the Resource Space. Year 7 and 8 students are in charge of research (and in training for lead roles) while our Year 9 students lead the debates at competition. Elwood College is the only state school competing at this level.
Team members are pictured here with teachers Miss Ella Broughton-Cunningham and Mrs Susan MacDonald. They are (left to right): Alexandra Thomas, Lily Lau, Deidre Gaylard, Zeta Hamilton-Durkin, Paris Malthouse, Kitty Smyth (Captain) and Amy Richardson (Captain).
