DHS Debate Club

DHS Debate Club

The Darwin High School Debate Club held their first after school debate on Thursday 21 September.

The students argued the topic “That, when Australian universities offer undergraduate places to high school students, they should consider resumes, personal statements and interviews instead of solely considering students’ ATAR results.

The debaters did a fantastic job teasing out the issues and crafting arguments to support their side’s case. The adjudicators, Lang Williamson (Chief Adjudicator), Matthew Shaw and Eddie Gardiner were impressed by the quality of the students’ rebuttals, substantive arguments and points of information. In what was an close debate, with a split decision, the Affirmative won.

Students will be having another after school debate on Thursday 28 September.
