  3. Thank you for all the work you are doing in organising this competition – it has been a great experience for our students. I have been really impressed with the way they have taken on responsibility for organising their speeches over these weeks.

  4. Hello Brendan – we received your invite to watch the Yr7 debate grand final – maybe by mistake as we wouldn’t normally be in your mailing list …. but we watched anyway with our four senior grade students – our only yr 7 student was absent.

    It was really good for our students to see the yr 7’s debating – we are remote and are trying to use polycom to keep in touch with class delivery and also meetings etc – in as many ways as possible, so this opportunity was much appreciated even if accidental.

    Please relay our congratulations to the students involved – very impressive arguments and display of how debates work for our students.

    We have had a look at the website and wondered if we could be included on the DL for viewing the debates for gr 56 in term 3 – we have a senior grade room of 7 students from 3 to 7 on Mon – Wed, and 5 students on Thurs and FRi due to part time enrolments and a split campus timetable, so we’re not ready to be included in a draw of competition …. yet.

    Thanks again

  5. Hi Brendan,
    We have really enjoyed being part of the debating this term. As we have 2 other groups (3 other campuses) would it be possible to inviolve each of them for a term each next semester?



  6. – Tawonga Primary School –
    Comments from students:

    – It was exciting keeping to the 1 minute time limit. Putting my point of view across in a timely manner.

    – It was great to look up on a map where all the other schools are located. To be able to talk to schools hundreds of kilometres was pretty awesome!

    – Was good learning how to prepare in a short amount of time.

    – I enjoyed speaking and working hard to try to persuade others to take our point of view.

    – I enjoyed hearing what other people’s opinions on the topics were.

    – I enjoyed working together with my friends in a team. Hearing feedback on how I presented was also valuable.

    (A great opportunity to have our students involved in learning with others from around Victoria. Thanks, N)

  7. I just wanted to say thank you for term 2 debating, our kids at Seymour loved it and learnt so much! We are also wondering if there is going to be a term 3 series and if we can sign up again for it? We now have a number of other students who want to give it a go. I was speaking to another teacher this morning from Pyalong and she is interested in getting involved so if there is going to be a series next term I will let her know to contact you.

    Thank you again,

  8. I learnt in debating to be more confident and to use my voice. Debating was a whole lot of fun and showed me to be confident….. as i said before. And i’m really looking forward to our term 3 of debating. Thanks a lot to Brendan for running our debates.

  9. I learnt to speak more clearly and loudly in front of an audience and to be silent when our mic is on green and not to be rude.
