Auckland Schools Debating: Grand Finals
01 Sep 2020 - 09 Sep 2020
Based on feedback from teachers and host schools, all preliminary rounds of ASD will be taking place online. We intend to use the online debating platform Yaatly, an easy to use platform designed specifically for online debating. Students will be able to prepare and debate from their own home or they can debate from one location (e.g. at school or at someone’s house). Further technical information will be released on this in the coming days.
A decision on break rounds will be made closer to the start of those rounds.
Auckland White (Friederike Voit, Millie Caughey, Jack Sandelin) and Auckland Blue (Isaac Mellis-Glynn, Kunli Zhang, Grace Chang) both advance from their semi finals at Nationals. Thank you to Otago-Southland and Wellington Black for thrilling semi final debates. The Auckland teams will face off in the Grand Finals streaming at 2pm. We will share the link to this page for viewers.
Congratulations to both teams on their amazing performance this weekend and best of luck for the finals!
