Two current and former Wellington schools debaters leave todayÂ to compete at theÂ 2009 World Schools Debating Championships, as part ofÂ the Russell McVeagh New Zealand Schools’ Debating Team.
Holly Jenkins (Sacred Heart College) and Maria English (Marsden) were both members of the team that finished as runners-up at the 2008 World Champs in Washington in September last year. This year, they are aiming to finish one place higher. Good luck!
The debating starts on 11 February and you can see round by round results as they come to hand at www.debating.org.nz
