The senior debating team of Daniel Maier-Gant (Year 13), Anita Suryani and Ben Hurley (both Year 12) competed in the Russell McVeagh Canterbury Regional Competition last weekend. The speeches within in this competition are traditionally of a very high standard and the title is fiercely contested. The St Andrew's team did extremely well to make to the semi-finals, after four intense rounds, where they were narrowly beaten by Burnside High School. Daniel Maier-Gant was selected for the Canterbury Squad for the second year running. He will be competing at nationals in May.
