This week in town hall, Grade 10 and 12 finalists were recognized for their persuasive and effective performances in this year’s Intragrade Debating Championship. Students in both grades participated in parliamentary style debating on a number of topics pertaining to current affairs, thereby challenged to construct persuasive arguments and rebuttals. The two highest ranking students in each class partnered up and went on to face off in the next round of the competition. Congratulations to our top debaters!
