Pre Finals Workshop and State Team Trials 2015

26/07/2015

This year we are offering a new Pre-Finals Workshop, to be held the week before Senior Finals. This workshop will assist students to prepare for the Senior Finals of the SADA Schools’ Competition, with a particular focus on secret topic debating. We recommend that all students competing in finals attend this workshop. Other interested students are also welcome to attend. The workshop will be held from 2.00-5.00pm on 23 August 2015 in Room BH2-16, Barbra Hanrahan Building, UniSA City West Campus, North Terrace.

We will also be hosting our usual Senior Debating Workshops, which are open to all students in years 9-11 and focus on particular aspects of senior debating. These workshops are a fantastic way for students to improve their debating ability regardless of their ability and experience, and form the basis of selecting the South Australian State Team for 2016. The details for these workshops are:

  • 2.00-5.00pm on 25 October 2015 in Room BH2-16, Barbra Hanrahan Building, UniSA City West Campus, North Terrace.
  • 2.00-5.00pm on 8 November 2015 in Room BH2-16, Barbra Hanrahan Building, UniSA City West Campus, North Terrace.

This November, over 30 of the best debaters in South Australia participated in the Senior Debating Workshops. These workshops aim to prepare students for debating in the SADA's senior grades but also form the basis of selection for the South Australian Schools' State Debating Team. The top 12 debaters from these workshops were selected to participate in further trials. The SADA commends the following students for their selection in the final 12:
