Four Armidale High School Year 7 students, Grace Carter, Casey Rainger, Rubi Ainsworth and Jessica Burgess,  travelled to Sydney to compete in the year 7 & 8 Premier's Debating Challenge Championships. The year 7 team had previously won the Zone and Regional finals in order to go on and compete at the championships in Sydney.

The championships were held at the Women's College in the picturesque grounds of Sydney University.Ten teams from across the state competed representing their region.

The competition was very strong and our team was the youngest competing in the championships - with all other teams being comprised of year 8 students.

AHS won the debate against James Ruse Agricultural High School and were narrowly defeated in other debates.

The team had a great time and learned much from the experience.
