Debating Day 2019

On Friday, 14th of June, Lyndale Secondary College hosted the first Lyndale SC Debating Day.

Schools from the local area were invited to attend a day of training and competition. Silverton, Wooranna Park, Lyndale Greens and Dandenong North all responded to the call and fielded two teams each, led and supported by student mentors from Lyndale Secondary College.

At the end of three rounds of debates addressing topics such as NAPLAN, artificial intelligence and the flexibility of school hours, the top two teams, Dandenong North and Wooranna Park, were invited to participate in the final in the school auditorium, later that afternoon, in front of parents and teachers. Wooranna Park went on to narrowly win the competition, successfully arguing in favour of NAPLAN.

Thanks to all who participated and made the day possible- from the primary schools to our own students and administration staff. We’ll be back next year for a bigger and better Debating Day, 2020!
