The Al-Taqwa College Primary Debate team was featured in the local newspaper StarWeekly for their achievements winning in the Debaters Association of Victoria state competition in November. The article appears in the latest issue of the Wyndham Vale edition of StarWeekly on page 8. Read what our debating team members had to say during their interview with the journalist and the various topics on which they debated.
An excerpt from the article:
“You wouldn’t want to cross these youngsters in a debate. Al-Taqwa College students Zohra, Aliza, Nazmin and Sara have enjoyed a winning year on the debating circuit, winning 27 out of 33 debates and taking out the Debaters Association of Victoria statewide tournament, the highest accolade they can receive in their year level. […] The group said self-confidence was the key to being a good debater.
“You’ve got to have passion in your speech to catch their attention … and give it your all,” Sara said.”
