​QACI Debating teams recently participated in the latest of the Queensland Debating Union - QDU preliminary rounds.

Two of our teams won their debates and have progressed to the Finals Series! QACI Debating Coach, Ms Alice Elwell, is the energy force behind each of our teams supporting all students to be the best they can be.

Congratulations Team 10.1: Sabina, Bella, Anmol and Caelan who debated for the affirmative of the short preparation topic ’That schools should be required to teach an Indigenous language’. They defeated Kelvin Grove State College by a convincing 3-point margin. This team is off to the finals, and will be a force to be reckoned with!


Congratulations Team 10.2: Nanna, Molly, Xanthia and Leo who debated for the negative of the same topic, and were up against #QASMT. Unfortunately, they were knocked out of the competition in what was a very challenging topic to argue at short notice. The team are to be commended on their hard work throughout the season, and should be very proud of what they have achieved - most members had limited debating experience, so to win two out of four debates is fantastic.


Congratulations Team 12.1: Lucy, Flynn, Luana and Millie who took the affirmative of the short preparation topic ’That Lime scooters should be banned’, beating Brisbane State High School. They brought their typical QACI razzle dazzle to what might seem like a fairly simplistic topic and managed to turn it into a debate over public safety versus innovation. Their passion, determination and convincing arguments will serve them well in the finals series!
