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.
