Telephone02 4332 8000


The school participates in the Premier's Debating Challenge for Years 5 & 6. Interested students are asked to try out for the debating team.

Students who form the debating team have the opportunity to take part in a debating workshop run be the Department of Education's Arts Unit. This workshop teaches students the basics of debating. Students and the debating coach then work together throughout the year to develop skills further as the team participates in the debating challenge.

Over the past few years, the school has enjoyed much success in the Hunter / Central Coast region.

In 2015 and 2014 the school team reached the Inter-zone rounds of the competition. In 2013 and 2012 the team made the Hunter / Central Coast grand final.
