Seymour College recently competed in the final of the Rotary debating competition.
The topic was ‘‘That science has caused most of our problems’’.
Seymour College was the affirmative and runners-up on the day, but it was a great effort to have made it through the competition out of 32 teams in the debating season which started in May 2013.
The opposition were Wodonga Secondary College.
The team members were: first speaker Caitlin Grant, second speaker Georgia Baker, and third speaker Lachlan Itter. The coach was Sophie Rilen.
Rotary Club of Seymour were supporters throughout the season and a big thanks to them.
The debate grand final was held during the annual conference at Shepparton’s Eastbank Centre on March 22.
Congratulations to the team who performed well on the day.
