Mandurah: Foundation students debate home schooling in grand final

THE Year 9 Foundation Christian College debating team is preparing to compete in the grand final of the WA Debating League competition on Monday.

The junior division team will make the negative argument That We Should Ban Home Schooling against Mandurah Catholic College.

Principal Andrew Newhouse said the college had been training Year 9 students in the art of debating for three years and it was the first time they had reached the grand final.

“In anticipation of reaching the grand final, our students will have the chance to host the event in our performing arts centre which will add to the prestige of the event,’’ he said.

“Achieving this milestone for our debating team is a credit to our college staff, in particular Alicia Hintz who has worked intensively with the team over the past few months.”

Four teams will compete in the Mandurah final.

Program: 6.30pm – Novice division, South Coast Baptist College v Mandurah Catholic College on That We Should Ban Offensive Music from the Radio, 7.40pm, Junior division, Mandurah Catholic College v Foundation Christian College.
