The Premiere A debating team (Ailidh Leslie, Merinda Jackson and Lauren Thompson) defeated Wellington College in the Wellington Secondary school’s top debating cup on 10 Sept. We successfully argued the motion ‘that academic streaming should be compulsory in New Zealand schools’ – The top speaker award went to Ailidh Leslie. It was a quality debate in front of a large audience and was conducted in excellent spirit from both teams The girls wore bits and pieces of WHS uniform from the past to add to the weight of their argument. WHS is exceptionally proud of the mana these three wonderful students have brought to the school and we wish them every success for the future.
