Thank you so much to our Year 11B Grade Debating team (and parents) for their participation in the DAV Finals Playoff last night at Lowther Hall Grammar, in Essendon. I appreciate that it was a bit of a distance to travel, so I thank you for your willingness to be present and to represent Whitefriars in such a wonderful capacity.
Firstly, commiserations to Josh, Sam N and Dathen of WFC#2 who lost by a margin of two points to Geelong Grammar School. They were well supported by Haywood, but unfortunately were outdone on the evening.
A big congratulations to Matt, Eric and Sam L of WFC#1 who defeated St. Margaret’s Berwick Grammar by two points. They were well supported by Dom and Lucas, and received some wonderful feedback from the adjudicator.
Whilst WFC#2 have been knocked out, WFC#1 will progress to the Octo-Finals! This means they are in the top sixteen schools in all of Victoria for the B Grade, which is such an incredible achievement.
To families wishing to support our Year 11 B Grade Debaters, please note down the following date and location:
DATE OF THE OCTO-FINAL: Thursday 7 September (WK9)
LOCATION OF THE OCTO-FINAL: St. Leonard’s College, 163 South Rd, Brighton East
