On Sunday 23 October the Year 9 Intermediate A team competed in the Grand Final debate. Their topic was that “It should be illegal for health care workers to strike” and they took the negative. Seymour had the affirmative.

Our team presented a well-constructed and persuasive argument but were not able to fully demolish Seymour’s model and so received the runners up cup.

The speakers on the day were:

1st Sophia Figueroa
2nd Eliza Rayner
3rd Olivia Giotis

The other members of the team who contributed are Tanishka Shukla, Grace Schulz, and Annabelle Fleming.
