The Great Debates 2019


In September, we hosted our annual Debating competition.  As always, three

boys from each year level, went head-to-head with a team of students from

Rotorua Girls’ High. Stakes were high. We held the Trophy from 2018.  As

students fought the battle of words to win their arguments, four adjudicators

(Mr Ben Sandford, Mr Matthew Martin, Ms Moana Dorset and Mr Ian Ferguson)

assessed each competitor’s, and their team’s performance. The competition

was tight. However, Boys’ High prevailed, retained the trophy and won four of the five debates.
