TALK-THE-TALK INTERMEDIATE-SCHOOL DEBATES 2015 : are well under way!
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!

Click here for the Talk-The-Talk Debates page (or go via the 'PROGRAMME-DETAILS' tab above) for all information - including dates, schools and moots, and all results, plus team photos of all those who have debated so far this year.
