QACI would like to congratulate our Year 11 Debating Team for an outstanding effort this year with their debating journey. Shout out to Alana, Kuyili, Imogene, Ruby, and Brin, along with and their coach and number one fan, Ms Kiehne. The team reached the second round of knock out semi-finals dealing with COVID lockdowns and delays at last week's semi final debate with Mt St Michaels. The new Teams format for this debate saw the group adapt seamlessly however they were narrowly defeated in this knock out round.
The team are celebrated and commended for eight months work representing QACI in the Queensland Debating Union competition and their demonstration of all six QACI pillars (pride, passion, persistence, preparedness, positivity and principled) was exemplary! The team took full charge of the competition and were unstintingly reliable throughout the whole process.
Ms Kiehne has expressed how the team has been pleasure to work with throughout the year and QACI will certainly look forward to seeing some of the team re-represent in next year's debates.
Well done Year 11 Debating.
