It is that time of year again when the Premiers Debating Challenge begins for 2016. This fabulous challenge is an opportunity for six of our fabulous year 5 and 6 students to face other schools in competitive debating. This incredibly important skill is one of the hardest things that one can do at Primary School and is still something that many adults find very difficult. The competition is run by the NSW DoE Arts Unit and is kicked off with a Primary Debating Workshop, which is this year being held at Erskineville Public School. Last year was fantastic with all of our debaters coming home with great tips for how to structure arguments and rebuttals. Six debaters will be taking place in the workshop and will form the 2016 debating team which will face 4 competitive debates against a number of schools in the Newtwon area.
