The Premier's Debating Challenge for Year 5 and 6
This program has already commenced.
Teams from across the state compete with the remaining ten regional champions meeting in a camp to determine the state champion.
About the competition
In this competition debates involve one hour unassisted preparation, which means that the 4 team members only find out the topic one hour before the debate, and are then given an hour without any assistance to prepare their case. After 4 such round-robin debates and a series of knock-out finals, the remaining 10 regional champions meet at a 3 day camp for a series of debates to determine the state champion.
