What a fantastic effort by our number 2 debate team of Maia Moloney, Brodie Simpson and Jordan Wiki who made it through to the quarter finals of the North Canterbury schools debating competition.

Last Thursday morning they argued in the negative against Ohoka School, on the moot that 'Space Exploration is a waste of Time and Money'.

This was a hard fought topic and our team had some fantastic points, however in the end they were beaten by the affirmative argument.

Well done team - it takes a lot of collaborative work to put together a good debate and you all did very well.
