Our Debating Interschool Tournament with AIA has been a highly successful event. The children, under the guidance of Ms Melligi, have been mastering their debating skills: the confidence to speak publicly; the construction of a logical argument and the ability to read an audience’s reactions and most importantly, the willingness to hear others’ arguments and to respond to them.
We have been fortunate enough to establish a friendly partnership with our friends at AIA Strathfield. We are proud of all the students, from both schools. Our Arkana senior students won. Unfortunately, for our juniors, it was neck to neck but we lost by a nose.
