The topic for the final Debate is:
That Australia’s need for oil outweighs potential harm to its coastal marine environment”
Now in its 26th year, the Kincumber Probus High School debate competition is again slated to be topical, highly spirited, and fun. Schools competing this year include the selective Gosford High School, Green Point Christian College, Central Coast Grammar School, and Kincumber High School.
The debates were started in 1993 by former NSW Legislator and club member Lerryn Mutton. Again, this year, the final debate will be decided by adjudicator Sue Macneil, who always provides excellent insight and feedback to the teams. Winning is not based upon which point of view is "right," but instead on how well the teams form and present their arguments and counter the arguments of the other team.
