Year 8 and 9 debaters performed well in Round 3 of their QDU competitions last Wednesday night.

The 8.2 team recorded a three point win over Bracken Ridge State High School. Sean Affleck impressed as third speaker.

Unfortunately, the 8.1 team recorded a narrow two point loss against Ferny Grove State High School despite another solid performance from Bergen O’Neill in second speaker.

The 9.1 and 9.2 teams both recorded victories. The 9.1 team notched up their third victory for the season while the 9.2 outfit claimed their first win of the year, overcoming St John Fisher College by one point.

Chess

Last Friday saw our Chessmen play host to St Laurence’s College. After a cracking 34 – 6 first round we were well on the way to resounding victory. Our final score of 54 – 26 was another great result. This week we travel to Marist College Ashgrove for a top of the table clash. This is a tough match but we are confident as we were victors last season. We wish our Chessmen the best of luck.
