Senior Debate Team Success
On Saturday, January 19, the senior debate team travelled to Stuttgart to participate in rounds three and four of the Debating Society German season. They won both debates against teams from Willi Graf München and Hölderlin Lauffen, which included motions covering environmental activism and taxes for the improvement of public transportation. Students participating in debate preparation and in the actual debates included Emily B., Annabelle N., Ashly Y., Jyotiraditya J., Henry Q., Amin El A., and Anukrit L. The debate team will compete in rounds five through eight of the debate season at the annual debate weekend, February 15 – 17, and they are very busy preparing for the four debates they will conduct at that time.
I am very proud of them for this accomplishment, as it means that they have made it through half of the season without losing a debate. This is a result of their hard work, dedication, and team work. Additionally, it is an excellent reflection of the leadership of Annabelle N., this year’s team captain.
