Debaters Down to Final Four in Victoria

The Geelong College's Year 10 Debating Team will compete tomorrow night for a place in the C Grade state finals.

The team of Lachlan Houen, Tom Forshaw, Patrick White, Imogen Duff, Kai Daly, Jonathan Hanson and Tom Trethewey have had an excellent season of debating. Their appearance in Wednesday 10 October's semi-finals means they are among four remaining teams, out of 420 C Grade teams from across Victoria.

Their semi-final debate will be against Trinity College. Under the guidance of Athol-Mary Mahoney and Heather Green, the College team has been preparing arguments to the affirmative on the topic: "That we should allow soldiers to opt out of conflicts to which they have a moral objection".

Congratulations to the Year 10s for making it into the top four, and we wish them the best of luck tomorrow night!
