SJS Debate Team Going to Provincials in Victoria

Our junior and senior debate teams competed in the DSABC Regional Debate Championships at Collingwood School on Saturday, February 2. Judy J. (Grade 11) and Jerry C. (Grade 11) placed 4th team in the region and qualified to move on to provincials in March in Victoria. Judy received the 8th Best Speaker in the region award.

Our team consisted of (from left to right) Anthony W. (Grade 9), Prav M. (Grade 9), Judy J. (Grade 11), Jasmine L. (Grade 11), Kitty W. (Grade 11), Jerry C. (Grade 11), Vitoria O. (Grade 11) and Davy X. (Grade 11).

All of the students debated with high energy throughout four rounds of prepared cross-examination and impromptu Canadian National Debating Format. We are incredibly proud of our team and all their hard work. Congratulations!

We would also like to extend a big thank you to our parents who volunteered during the tournament: Dr. Shao Hua Lu, Mrs. Michelle Chen, Mr. Murakami and Mrs. Harmeet Mundra.
