Po Leung Kuk Ngan Po Ling College and Wong Shiu Chi Secondary School met in the 1st preliminary of the 27th Sing Tao Inter-school Debating Competition. The motion was "the re-launching of the Home Ownership scheme brings more benefit and harm”. Our school took the affirmative side, and Wong Shiu Chi Secondary School the negative.
The adjudicators gave the edge to our school because of our stronger arguments, diversified perspectives and specific rebuttals. Our team was credited with being very confident and fluent in the presentation.
The best debater and the best interrogative speaker was Thaika Mohamed Thalha (F5S1). He was recognized with his concrete argument and lively evidence to support his views, which convinced and impressed the adjudicator so much.
The team will enter the 2nd preliminary schedule in 2012.
