Term 3 has seen the resumption of the Archdale debating competition and this week Loreto hosted St Catherine’s Waverly. The girls were debating on the highly topical area of International Relations. Our Year 7 and 8 teams debated the topic, That the Olympic Games should be not be hosted by countries with high levels of poverty, whilst our seniors had the highly specific topic, That the European Union (EU) should impose harsh trade conditions on the UK following their exit from the EU. The Loreto 7A, 8A and 8B teams secured wins and the Year 10 team got the points due to a forfeit.
Next Tuesday we are away at Pymble Ladies College for the last of the regular Archdale rounds. Loreto will be hosting the quarter finals of the Archdale competition on 23 August.
