Brockbank fifth and sixth-graders have been working hard the last few months preparing for the district debate tournament.

At the district tournament out of 90 overall students Brockbank students did extremely well. Students debated in teams of two, overall winners are in pairs. On the negative side going to state; Emily Lund and Amanda Mitchell, Abbey Colledge and Taylor Swan, Amelia Moleff and Emily Rowley, and Makaylee Bryson and Brooke Sorensen.
