DAV Debating

The St Margaret’s debaters continued to experience success in Round 4 of the DAV Competition, exhibiting poise and quick-thinking as they faced further secret topic debates. Our A and C grade teams narrowly lost their debates while our B grade team had a significant victory of 8 points. Congratulations must go to Sithmi Obadage for being awarded Best Speaker. The D grade teams continue to develop their speaking and argument skills and amongst the five teams there were three wins. With Round 5 of the competition to go, St Margaret’s School has three teams sitting at the top of the ladder: B grade, C grade, D grade teams 1 and 3. We wish all the teams the best as they head into their final debates next Thursday 27 July at St Margaret’s Senior School. Family and friends are very welcome to come and support the girls.
