House Debating


2016 was the first year House Debating was an official part of the House Cup. Over 96 girls competed in Year 7, Year 8, Year 9 and Senior divisions. This gave girls who had never debated, but who had always been interested, the chance to try it out. It was also an opportunity to showcase some existing talent. The results for each division are as follows:

The winner of the 2016 Debating House Cup was Anderson followed by Ferguson and then Wilkie. Congratulations to all students who participated.

This competition is the result of a tremendous amount of work by House Captains, House Patrons, adjudicators and supporters, as well as every student who gave up their lunches to participate. Final thanks must go to Ms Sidoti, Debating Coordinator and the mastermind behind this event, for her constant encouragement of the girls.

House Debating has been an encouraging and exciting event for all, increasing the spotlight on the depth of talent at PLC Sydney.
