It was the first night of the 2020 Western Australia Debating League (WADL) season and our teams were in action, competing with other local schools. Our novices got their first taste of WADL debating by getting their teeth stuck into whether politics should be a compulsory subject in high school. Our seasoned senior debaters wrestled with the complex role NATO plays in world affairs. With Rookie Debating to come next term (as well as Interhouse Debating), public speaking is alive and well at St Stephen’s!
