Prem B Champions – Wellington East

On Tuesday the 23rd of September, at the Wellington City Council Chambers (101 Wakefield Street). Wellington East and Kapiti went head to head on the motion that “this house would legalise commercial surrogacy”.

In what was considered a close and excellent debate by the audience and judges alike, Wellington East managed to successfully affirm the motion and are the champions of Prem B for 2014.

Commiserations to Kapiti who narrowly lost the final after having lost only one other debate this year.

A special thanks to the judges, City council and everyone who came to watch.

Until next year!

Premier B Grand Final

I would like to start by congratulating both Wellington East Girls’ College and Kapiti College for winning their semi finals and making it to the grand final for 2014.

The grand final will take place on Tuesday the 23rd of September, at the Wellington City Council Chambers (101 Wakefield Street). Doors will open at 6:30pm and the debate will start at 7pm on the dot.

The motion for the final is “This house would legalise commercial surrogacy” – WEGC is affirming and Kapiti is negating.

I have seen both these teams in debates and can personally vouch that these two teams deserve to be in the final and their speakers are of a very high caliber – so it promises to be an excellent debate.

Everyone and anyone is invited to attend and I encourage as many of you to come as possible.

Also snacks will be provided (so come and get these if nothing else).

Looking forward to seeing you there!
