Stonar's debaters shine in Rotary heat

Congratulations to Stonar pupils who performed brilliantly in February's Senior heat of the Rotary-sponsored 'Youth Speaks' debating challenge.

Held at Stonar, the competition pitted 6 teams from local schools against each other. Stonar's team of Sophie Drew, Tilly Thomson and Abigail Collis-Smith came second with their motion of 'Pages over Pixels'. 

Tilly Thomson received the additional accolade of 'Best Speaker.'

The Stonar team now go forward to the senior semi-final to be held later in the month.

"We had a super time at Stonar last night and the staff and students were very welcoming," commented Graham Baskerville of the Rotary Club.
