The sixth Hong Kong Schools Individual Debating and Public Speaking Championship was held on the 26th of November, 2011, at La Salle College in Kowloon. A group of 20 very talented students from 13 schools in Hong Kong contested the event in four categories: debating, interpretive reading, persuasive speaking and impromptu speaking.

Every student presented their speeches and readings with poise and polish. The standard was extremely high, and every single contestant can feel proud of their work, no matter what the ranking. It must be remembered that to even compete on the day is already a significant achievement, and the experience will stand the students in good stead as they develop their public speaking skills going forward.

Brian Wong from Island School cleared out from the pack to win by a margin of 12 points from his nearest rival. He gave lively performances in all four disciplines with a unique style of energy, articulation and humour. A bright future beckons for this year 10 whizz-kid whose ability to engage an audience was very clear to all the judges on Saturday.
