YHS Hosts Jr. Provincial Debate Championships

JrDebateChampionships_27Feb2016-7843From 8:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday, February 27th, York House hosted over 150 debaters, judges, and volunteers from across the province, for the Jr. Provincial Debate Championships.

The feedback from the tournament was really positive with comments from judges and debaters alike about how smooth and timely everything was!

This wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the following people: Nita, Kathy, Paul Sinclair and his team (of course!), Zosia, Karm, Mabel, Kara, Christine, Philip, Chris Cropley, and Shannon (for sharing the building with us despite musical rehearsals).

And the many Yorkies who donated their valuable downtime to moderate the debates and keep them flowing: Andrea, Ariel, Isobel, Angela, Catherine, Rosy, Nicole, Lucy, Taylor, and Fiona.

And last, but definitely not least, Rosa, who rocked her rounds and represented the school really well!

I want to extend my gratitude to all the teachers, staff, and students who volunteered their time to help make the debate tournament the huge success that it was!
