ICCES Debating – Young Competitors Step Up

Congratulations to our Braemar College Debating Team who stepped up to the challenge at the recent ICCES Debating Competition.

Despite not winning, the debaters did a great job.

Senior Scores

Round 1 Braemar 222 vs Hamilton 226
(Hugh Millar, Tanvir Brar, Maddi Condron)

Round 2 Braemar 222 vs BMG 226
(Adele Gehling, Georgie Speed, Max Tett)

These scores were extraordinary considering our senior team was filled with Year 8 students and their opponents were generally Year 11’s.

Special mention should go to the Year 8’s who stepped in for the seniors.
