Final Debate for the Year
On Friday 29th April 2016, TKP Debating Team had their fourth and final debate for the Hong Kong Debating Competition 2015-2016. The debate was held on school grounds against Ning Po Secondary School. We were honored to have Ms. Rachel Kwan from Hong Kong University Debating Team to adjudicate for us. Also, we had Mr. Simon Patience, the NET from Lai Chak Secondary School, who came to observe the debate.
The motion for the debate was “Homeschooling provides more benefits than drawbacks.” To represent us as the affirmative team, we had three Form 5 students: Yuki Lo 5A(10), Kathleen Lam 5A(7) and Carpio Antonio 5C(9). The TKP debating team had spent weeks preparing for the debate and had trained persistently on giving effective rebuttals. It was an intense debate, however, our hard work paid off when TKP was announced the winner. Moreover, Carpio was awarded the title of “Best Speaker” for the debate. We are very happy to finish this year’s debate on a high! Next year, new debaters are invited to join the team to gain a most valuable experience.
