HICES Debating Semi Final Victory!!!

Today our Senior HICES Debating team travelled to Broughton Anglican College to compete in a Semi-Final debate. Tetian, Katherine, Darcy and Mia worked effectively to develop a sophisticated and logical case against the notion ‘That social media companies should take a more active role in banning trolls’. Their counter arguments were insightful and practical; allowing them to win the debate and progress to the Grand Final in two weeks’ time. This is a remarkable achievement for these students and for our school. We are so proud of their achievements this year and wish them God’s richest blessings for a fantastic debate at the Grand Final.

HICES Debating Quarter Finals

Inaburra School had the pleasure of hosting two HICES Debating Quarter Finals last week. Our Senior team debated Arndell Anglican College and presented a victorious case on the topic, ‘That protests are the hallmarks of democracy’ while our Open division team debated Emanuel School and presented an excellent case on the topic ‘that innovation is not possible without government funding’. Both teams won their respective debates and progress to the State level Semi-Finals. This is an outstanding achievement and is attributed to the skills and commitment of our debaters. We wish them God’s richest blessings in their Semi-Final debates over the next two weeks.

Year 10 Geography Excursion to the Olympic Park Wetlands

Wetlands used to be seen as wastelands of little value. In week 4, Year Ten Geography visited the wetlands at Sydney Olympic Park. They looked at how, over the years, the area has changed and how the wetlands are now being managed.  Students measured things like turbidity of water, soil moisture, wind speed, light intensity, soil ph to decide how healthy the wetlands are in their current state.
