This popular Debate Challenge has returned for 2015 and (apart from the 26Sep-11Oct school-holiday break) will be heard live at 4pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays until late October - twelve Heats will be followed by three Semi-Finals and one Best-Of-The-Rest, with the contest culminating in the Grand Final on 29th October.
Eleven local schools (15 teams) are this year competing for the Debating Shield as well as a generous package of sponsors' products.
Next week, we hear teams from Taradale Intermediate
, St Joseph's Maori Girls College
, Hastings Intermediate
and Maraekakaho School
, debating moots about whether car headlights need to be switched on at all times, and about whether or not school uniform serves a purpose!
