Jr HKSDC Autumn 2010 Results

The Junior Hong Kong Schools Debating Championship – Autumn 2010 was held on the 20th November 2010 at German Swiss International School. As the development of the Hong Kong Schools Debating Council continued, the reins of the tournament were handed over to a student committee consisting of Heather Pickerell of GSIS, Benjamin Allen of LSC, Benjamin So of HKU, James Lo of DBS and Tiffany Chung of SIS with supervision by Mrs. Krystyna Butchart, Teacher Supervisor of the GSIS Debating Society, and Mr. Michael Evershed, Chairman of the Hong Kong School Debating Council. This is in line with our focus upon students and it certainly paid off with a brilliant and successful event. A total of 24 teams took part in a tournament that featured some high quality debates and bodes well for the future of Hong Kong Debating.
