In 2019, Adjudicators will be asked to nominate for a debate via the NGS Super Virtual Debating Website.
As soon as a debate is scheduled it will be placed in the 'Match Centre' section of the site. Simply click on the 'Read More' button and use the 'Nominate as an Adjudicator' link on the match-up screen to nominate your availability.
In the event that no adjudicators have nominated for a debate the AISNSW will email all adjudicators prior to the scheduled date requesting availability and interest.
In the event no adjudicator can be assigned, the debate will be recorded and offered to the adjudicators for a post match adjudication.
In 2019, Adjudicators are required to host all debates as part of the adjudication requirements. Please see below for information on how to host a debate.
All relevant information, links and contacts for each debate can be found in the match-up screen via the Match Centre. From this screen you will be able to nominate your availability, obtain debate links, topic sheets, contacts and submit results.
Please use the relevant Adjudicators Reference Sheet below as a checklist during the debate to ensure the proper process is followed.
Year 5 + 6 and 7 + 8 Debating Reference Sheet
