“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” – Aristotle
The English Debating Team has been quite busy over the past couple of years with a junior team and a senior team competing in various inter-school competitions including the HKPTU Debating Competition, the Hong Kong Secondary Schools Debating Competition, the Wah Yan Kowloon Junior Inter-school Debating Tournament, the CityU Discovery & Innovation Debating Challenge as well as the Sing Tao Inter-school Debating Competition. The results have also been very encouraging.
The competitions have given our students the chance to develop critical thinking and analytical skills in addition to boosting their confidence when speaking to an audience. Even when a motion does not seem to be in our favour, the team members have been able to hammer out arguments that have successfully convinced adjudicators to declare them winners and award them best speakers. The long hours of debate preparation have not been in vain as the skills and language that have been gained will forever be with the team members. It is hoped that the success of the English Debating Team will serve as a reminder to all that hard work really does pay off.
