2010/2011 French debating season kicks off
Following two consecutive wins in the Joutes Oratoires Interscolaires, organised by the Alliance Francaise, Mount Temple has once again entered a team for the 2010/2011 season. The team members are Sarah Hashish (Capt.), Shelley Carlyle, Esmay Murray and Michael Buggle. The first round took place on Oct.1 and the motion was that “l’annee scolaire est trop longue” Despite a very spirited debate, the team was narrowly defeated by Gonzaga College but has been allowed to progress to the second round because of it’s strong performance. Shelley Carlyle won a Best Speaker award. The second round will take place in November when the team hopes to see an equally devoted group of supporters as last time.Many thanks to our French Assistante Anouck for all her help.
