Arguing against watching the news
Umina Beach Public School's Year 6 debating team competed against Kariong Public School recently.
The Umina team competed with distinction but were narrowly defeated by Kariong.
The topic of the debate was "All students in Year 5 and 6 should have to watch the news each day for homework".
The debaters from Umina had to argue against the statement and came up with some convincing arguments as to why watching the news should not be part of homework.
Arguments included not having enough time, the inappropriate nature of some news programs and unreasonable viewing times.
