Year 7 PDC Debate Team Twinkle and Shine their way through their first out-of-school debate against Sydney Boys (and the Year 8 PDC Debate Team put up a good fight!)
On Thursday the 29th of July 2022, Fort Street’s Year 7 PDC Team won their first debate against Sydney Boys. The topic was on social media and the team learnt from their first debate to work better as a team and this yield them great rewards.
Excellent work to Divyan Gnanasivam, Joanna Park, Oliver Williams, Jason Lim, Gabriel Cutcher Skellern and Tom Mitchell.
Even though the Year 8 PDC Team had a very strong streak of victorious debates, they found the debate challenging. This was not due to their strong opponent in the form of Sydney Boys with their renowned reputation for debating, but that the question they received was very difficult to argue.
A fine effort from Aiden Sen, Henry Huang, Aaditya Venkatraman, Bhavnish Jain and Chinmay Dixit.
Nonetheless, both teams will proceed to the third round of the PDC debate against Sydney Secondary College Balmain.
