Do we need a referendum to decide whether we change the date of Australia Day? Should the Order of Australia be awarded for paid work? At what point should social media companies be held responsible to remove hate speech from their platforms? These are some of the topics debated at last night’s HICES Debating event, held at Macarthur Anglican School.
It was a chilly yet successful evening, with all eight teams from Years 7 to 12 winning their respective debates. We now look to the Finals Series, where a number of our teams will compete against schools across all NSW regions. All students are commended on their eloquence, effective collaboration in preparing their cases and for the way they conducted themselves throughout the event.
