Quarter Finals of NASSSA Debating

Is democracy the best form of government? That was the question posed to the 8 teams who qualified for the quarter finals of the NASSSA Debating Competition. The high standard demonstrated throughout the competition was on display, as students took to the stage to argue the advantages and disadvantages of our government system. Salisbury East, Paralowie and Para Hills all successfully convinced the adjudicator, Mrs Pole, of their position, with most debates being decided by only a few points. They will now meet in the semi-finals, to be held at Twelve25 on the 26th September, to debate whether using animals for sports is an outdated concept.
