Cheque donationTen Students from Wee Waa High School are busy undergoing weekly training and practice during their lunch break in term 2 for the 2018 Premier's Debating Challenge for Years 7 and 8.  Debates have been organised against Narrabri High School (topic- education), Collarenebri High School (topic- the media) and Farrer Memorial Agricultural High School (topic-Australian society).

 

The Wee Waa NSW Farmers Branch Chair Michael Haire proudly presented a cheque to Team Captain Emma Kirby.  The local Branch have a long history supporting the community across education, rural community issues and agriculture, and were ‘pleased to contribute' said Michael.

 

The first debate for the year will be held on Wednesday June 6 at Collarenebri Central School, accompanying the students will be staff Carmel Schwager and Helen Wenner.  This year the Team will be guided by two Year 9 mentors Amelia Kiem and Sarah Hamilton, who will draw on their experience to support the Team.  A team dinner will be held in the near future to provide the students and parents a chance to further build team spirit.
