Champion debating team has a way with words
PERTH Modern School’s junior debating team beat Shenton College in the WA Debating League junior grand final last month.
Principal Lois Joll said Perth Modern had a long history of producing outstanding debaters.
“The Perth Modern School debating club attracts a very large following, with multiple teams participating in the WA Debating League,” Ms Joll said.
The team was made up of students Ella Davies, Sagar Badve, Lucy Skeldon, Sonia Lal, Elizabeth Marsh and Isabel Boogaerdt.
Sagar said a lot of preparation and many hours of hard work had gone into making the grand final.
“We were so thrilled to be announced as the winner as the team from Shenton College had performed really well on the night so we knew it would be a close call,” Sagar said.
“We are really proud of how well we worked together as a team, we encouraged each other all the way through and we had a lot of laughs too.
