Round 3 of DAV Debating was an exciting one, particularly for our senior speakers. Our C Grade team faced their first Advised Topic debate, knowing only that it would be about Animals. The team thoroughly prepared for any number of potential issues and were more than ready when the topic was announced. They won their debate by 4 points with Pranjal Pokhalekar being awarded Best Speaker. This round also involved secret topics for the A and B Grade teams and they were prepared to tackle any challenging topic. Our A Grade speakers were victorious in their debate with Captain Tracy Bu being awarded Best Speaker. The B Grade speakers were likewise successful with Eloise Smith taking Best Speaker. Our D Grade teams continued to build their confidence in the skills of speaking and presenting an argument. Three teams won their debates with Sabrina Ward and Devindi Ambawatta receiving Best Speaker. We congratulate all of the girls on their fine efforts and look forward to seeing them speak in the next round. Family and friends are very welcome to come and support the girls for Round 4 on Thursday 22 June at St Margaret’s Senior School.
