Last weekend, members of the Island School debate team took part in the 2023 Senior SDC debate competition. This prestigious competition brought together the best teams from top schools across Hong Kong for two days of matches, and after 7 rounds of intense verbal jousting, the team from Island School was able to proudly walk away with the 2nd place trophy!
The team’s hard-won victory is especially impressive given the circumstances. Besides facing off and defeating numerous other skilled, highly-regarded opponents, the team also had to contend with a sudden, unexpected shift to online competition due to Typhoon Koinu. Their success in this tournament is a testament to both their speaking skills as well their resilience in the face of unexpected changes and challenges.
This House hereby congratulates Ava Au Yeung (11D), Vijay Narayanan (11F), Chloe Wong (11D) and Alexandra Lai (12W) for their impressive runner-up placement in the 2023 Senior SDC debate competition! Hear hear!
