Following a successful run at the SACEE Championships in the previous terms, the junior team was one of the 40 schools invited to participate in the Gauteng Provincial Schools’ Debating Championships on 15 and 16 September. The demanding six rounds of predominantly policy debates were spread out over two days at Parktown High School for Girls and Pretoria High School for Girls. The team soldiered on and adjusted well to the new format of seven-minute debates, securing a spot in the Gauteng Provincial Schools’ Debating Championships Plate Break trophy rounds in October.
Thank you to all the staff who came along to support the team over the weekend.
