Ettalong finishes 16th in State debating
Ettalong Public School's Premier's Debating Challenge team placed 16th in the statewide competition of 923 schools.
Principal Ms Lynn Balfour said the school community was thrilled with the result.
"I am absolutely thrilled for them.
"Teams are given the topic one hour before the debate and they have to write their own arguments.
"Teachers are not allowed in the room until the children have finished then when the debate commences, team members have to listen very carefully to the opposition in order to write their own rebuttals," Ms Balfour said.
