A-School Junior English Debate Team won the 1st runner-up in HK Secondary Schools Debating Competition (Primary Section)
 

The A-School Junior English Debate Team (Primary Division) participated in the Grand Final of Hong Kong Secondary Schools Debating Competition (Primary Section) on June 14, 2018. Against the Yaumati Catholic Primary School (Hoi Wang Road), our team played on the affirmative side to debate on the topical issue “Hong Kong should ban the sale of all shark fin products here”. After rounds of fierce debate, our team got the 1st Runner-up and G5 Anthony Zhu was presented the Best Speaker Award.

The competition attracted 38 teams from 22 primary schools. Our team worked very hard in every match and defeated counterparts including Diocesan Girls’ Junior School, Diocesan Boys’ School Primary Division and Renaissance College in the semi-final to enter the final. The valuable experiences obtained in the competition would help them refine their debating skills.
