The Essington School Darwin 9 "Enjoyable, fun, challenging, intellectual and meeting with old and new friends from other schools." Gautam Abhyankar Year 9 It's a good challenge because sometimes you get those challenging topics and you get to do some research while you're at it. Neel Kshirsagar Year 8 Results: Round 1: "Crocodiles are better than sharks" Essington 1 were narrowly defeated by St Johns (2 points difference). Essington 3 defeated by Essington 2. Round 2: "The Olympics are a waste of resources" Essington 1 defeated St Johns. Essington 3 defeated by Essington 2. Round 3 will be an impromptu debate. Students will not be told the topic until they get to the debating venue and will have an hour to prepare their arguments. This means that the finishing time will be an hour later than usual. Impromptu Debate Where: Casuarina Senior College When: March 11 th 4pm 6pm We wish them all the best for this next challenge.
