HBHS Senior Debating Team finish season on a winning note

The HBHS Senior Debating Team of Nicholas Goodman, Timothy Ng and Sameer Mandhan have taken out the Waikato Secondary Schools Debating Competition after an almost unbeaten run in competition this year.  Their season began on a winning note as they defeated St John's College in the Russell McVeagh final and then went through the Waikato competition without losing a debate.  They were successful at Super 8 in Rotorua, despite being without Nick who had been selected to compete at Nationals.  They finished with a victory over Waikato Diocesan having successfully negated that politicians should be granted immunity from being charged for crimes in their pasts.  As an added bonus, Sameer was awarded the Best Speaker prize.  Congratulations once again to the team and thanks and congratulations to Teacher in Charge of Debating, Mr Kevin Brown.
