Debating is an excellent way to develop skills in critical thinking, team work, problem solving and public speaking. Northcote High school consistently fields a number of talented debating teams in the statewide inter-school competition. They will research and debate topics ranging from the Australia-US relationship to the impact of the sharing economy, plus a wide range of political, ethical and social issues.
These are the Year 8-12 students who will represent Northcote High School in the Debaters Association of Victoria (DAV) competition for 2017. Congratulations and good luck to all team members.
Dates for the DAV competition in the Ivanhoe region are:
Round one March 16th
Round two April 27th
Round three May 25th
Round four June 22nd
Round five July 27th
Year 7 students can get involved by nominating to join an in-school competition. Names will be taken and teams organised at the Year 7 Picnic on February 28.
