Proving that age is not a barrier, Nils Maletz (5c), Mia Meixner, Maj, Bradan, Theresa Offenbeck (4a), Aila Murakami (4b) were put through to the Middle School Final of the Mediterranean Schools Debating Championship 2022. They debated extremely well on various topics (Human Rights, privatisation of public utilities, Sports & Politics) against some of the best debaters from Spain, Czechia and further afield.
Due to their excellent performance they were put through to the final for their age group, duking it out with Morocco Juniors. The topic for the final was “This House would pursue ones talent over academic success”; having made some very convincing and compelling arguments the Judges had no choice but to give the win to our students!
We are all very proud of their success and hope to continue developing our burgeoning debate club this year!
Special Thanks to Mr Ó Cribín Soldo for preparing them for this achievement. Due to Mr Ó Cribín Soldo’s wealth of experience in debating & judging he was even involved in judging the final rounds for other age categories.
