Karamu High School win 2014 Regionals
The mighty Hawke’s Bay Regionals Schools’ Debating Championships took place over the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd of March. This year it was hosted by Karamu High School in Hastings.
The level of debating in Hawke’s Bay has continued its upwards trajectory. Students debated a range of topics at a high level, and all adjudicators were very impressed.
11 teams participated in the tournament, which was won by Karamu High in a final against Napier Boys’ High School. Congratulations to best speaker from the winning team Justin Alsleban, and to the other two members of the Hawke’s Bay team: Sam O’Grady (NBHS) and Annie Ward (Karamu High).
Special thanks to Jo Morris for all her efforts putting the tournament together.
