Well, Day 2 was great. I actually didn’t see the semi finals, because I was asleep… But the final was absolutely amazing. The two teams in the final were Auckland 15 and Auckland 12. While it was unfortunate that only Auckland managed to break into the final, it was still great to see such an amazing debate. The motion was something along the lines of “This house supports the self governance of indigenous populations”. The two teams did an amazing job of debating, and while I don’t exactly agree with the adjudication panel’s decision, both teams definitely deserved to win. Auckland 15 took it out in the end. Now we look to the next debating competition. I couldn’t say when or where that is, but its still something to look forward to.
