The Hawke’s Bay Regional Debating Championship was held over the weekend of the 18/19th of March at Sacred Heart College. The tournament saw a huge turnout with 22 teams entered from schools from Gisborne to CHB and everywhere in between. After 4 rounds of debating 4 teams managed to break to the Semi Final, these were, Napier Girls High School, Karamu High School, Havelock North High School and Napier Boys High School. At the end of the day, Napier Boys High School emerged as the victorious team of the 4 managing to take out an extremely high quality final again Karamu on the topic of privatising water.
The weekend was a great success and all the credit for that has to go to Sacred Heart for doing a great job as the host school.
