This past weekend the debate team participated in the UBC High School Tournament which took part over the course of Friday and Saturday. There were over 90 junior teams in attendance from across the Mainland and the Island – some from schools with long-standing debate programs, and others, like York House, with more fledgling teams.
Congratulations to our girls for a great turn out and for a solid attitude in the midst of such formidable competition. Saskia and Rosa both gave an amazing performance which earned them the medal for Top Junior Novice Team 2014.
We are super proud of these girls for the maturity and finesse they displayed in the face of verbal/intellectual adversity!
