Congratulations to the Bell Primary Debating Team for their outstanding effort at the Statewide Debating Tournament at Melbourne University on Friday. Bell Primary Team One finished second overall (with two out of three victories and the highest point score of any team) and Bell Primary Team Two also put in a solid performance (winning one of three debates).
All ten debaters worked hard in the lead-up to the tournament, collaborating with teammates and writing speeches during lunch-times and at home.
On the day they made the school proud with the way they delivered their speeches, the respectful manner in which they competed and the way they helped each other out in preparing for the secret topic debates.
Well done to all members of the team: Tahlia, Lydia, Eve, Mungo, Ali, Maeve, Ben, Aimee, Tinu and Freya.
Thank you also to the parents of the debating team for your support, many of whom helped transport students to the Statewide tournament or who came along to support their children at various competitions during the year.
