Yesterday was the Waikato Regional Debating competition, after an 8am start and 6pm finish, Hillcrest had some incredible results and a very worthwhile day!
Jessica Licht, Sarah Crowther, and Chaelin Park’s team won the entire tournament in a formidable final against St Peter’s. They were arguing in the final that we should remove notable public figures off of social media platforms.
Sarah was given a highly commended award and Jessica was ranked the best speaker at the tournament overall and got into the Waikato Regional Team.
Avee Belhamine who is one of our amazing year 11 speakers got into the Waikato Development Squad. Also a huge thank you to Mrs Baumberg for devoting all of her Sunday to support our debaters!
Overall a great effort from Hillcrest!
