Inter-Class Debate Competitions: A Showcase of Eloquence and Critical Thinking
Two inter-class debate competitions were successfully held during lunchtime recently, featuring engaging motions that sparked lively discussions among the participating students.
The first motion, Mid-Autumn Festival should become a holiday, explored the significance of this traditional festival and its potential as a public holiday. Students presented persuasive arguments, delving into aspects like cultural importance, family reunions, and the celebration of Chinese heritage.
The second motion took a creative turn, setting foot in the world of popular animation with the topic Doraemon shouldn’t take Nobi back to the past to rectify his mistakes. This debate provided a platform for students to ponder the ethics of time travel and its possible impacts on life’s natural course.
These debates not only offered an opportunity for students to express their opinions but also enhanced their public speaking, critical thinking and teamwork skills. It was encouraging to see the enthusiasm and passion with which our students approached these topics, fostering a vibrant academic environment within our school community.
