We encourage our students to care for others, we help them to understand the needs and feelings or others and help them to find ways to look after each other.
Our debaters are on FIRE! New Lambton South Teal’s were victorious against Dudley Primary School on Tuesday. This is the 6th win in a row for the team. This is an outstanding effort for a rookie team who had little experience in debating just over a term ago. This topic for debate was “We should only allow pop stars who are good role models perform in Australia”, a challenging topic for young minds to debate on. However the team who were affirmative gave some very strong and persuasive arguments around this topic. A big congratulations to Isaac, Callan, Riti and Marissa. The team will debate this week in the quarter finals. Stay tuned for their latest results.
