Debating

DebatingThe Sutton Primary School Debating Team is a group of dedicated students from Years 4, 5 & 6 who wish to work on their debating skills and compete in various challenges.

The members of the debating group learn about different techniques and address a wide variety of topics for discussion including; education, the media, Australian society and health & fitness.

The students have embraced the debating program with success in students numbers and competition growing dramatically in the 3 years. In 2016 we had over 15 active participants in the debating program with 2 teams competing in the Premier’s Debating Challenge. We finished the group stage of the competition with 6 wins out of 7 with Sutton Green moving through to the Regional Finals undefeated.
