During Term 4, Year 5 students had the opportunity to meet with Francesco, School Captain 2021, from De La Salle College, Ashfield. Francesco is also part of his school debating team. Francesco was able to pass on a wealth of knowledge and experience with debating and he graciously answered many questions from the Year 5 students. Francesco then conducted a debate for both affirmative and negative positions for the topic “Screen time for students should be limited to an hour a day”. Our Year 5 students, Emma and Daniel then shared samples from their debates with Francesco.
We thank Francesco for his leadership skills, his time, and for providing the students with some great advice and tips. We also thank De La Salle College, Ashfield, for this great opportunity.
