The Senior Debating team, consisting of Anna von Willingh, Anathi Mngxekeza, Amaarah Ebrahim, Michaela Todd and Semane Reddy-Mbewu, won the Western Cape Schools Debating competition over the long weekend. Trials to progress through to this tournament occurred fortnightly throughout the year and the outcome was determined by nine debates over two consecutive weekends. The Senior team made it through to the quarter-finals, where they beat Bergvliet; they went on to triumph over Reddam House Constantia in the semi-final and then beat DF Malan in the final. We are very proud of the hours, training and teamwork displayed by these brilliant girls!
The junior team narrowly missed out on the quarter final by one position. We congratulate Haadiyah Ebrahim, Epiphany Stransham-Ford, Kate Forest, Tallulah Baird, Grace North and Lulama Lingela on their efforts and progress.
Semane Reddy-Mbewu, Anna von Willingh and Haadiyah Ebrahim were also selected as individuals to potentially represent the Western Cape regional team.
