Debating in Adelaide, South Australia

Welcome

QUESTION TIME FORMAT TRIAL THIS ROUND: While the adjudicator is adding up his/her marks and preparing feedback, we thought that we would have a fun exercise for the debaters.

It’s called Question Time. This is an informal exercise that is not marked. All divisions from Year 5 to Senior will participate in this format. See debatingsa.com.au/QuestionTime for details.
