Congratulations to Junior Team Carmel 1 who made it to the semi-finals of the WADL Competition for the second year in a row! Chaya B, Aviya S and new team member Rebecca S, presented high-quality performances throughout the season, and are on the path to maintain their title of Junior State Debating Champions.

 Last Tuesday, the students faced St Mary's at Perth College in the Octo-finals and debated the topic, “The house supports Instagram's decision to hide ‘likes’ on posts”, arguing for the negative. All students performed exceptionally well resulting in our first win for the finals draw! Carmel 1 will now proceed to the next round where they will debate Perth Modern 16 on the topic, “The house believes that we should never negotiate with terrorists.” We wish them all the best. Good luck, Carmel 1!
