Prior to the creation of the Hong Kong Schools Debating Council, the organisation of the Hong Kong Team for the World Individuals Debating and Public Speaking Championship was handled by the Hong Kong Parliamentary Debating Society.

The top 6 speakers were guaranteed positions on the Hong Kong Team representing the region at the 2009 World Individuals Debating and Public Speaking Championships held in Reading, United Kingdom.

There was a slight error in calculation of scores which meant that 3 students from South Island School were announced as the 6 representing Hong Kong, despite the regulation that no more than 2 students per school were permitted. As a result, the team was expanded to 7 following approval from the organizers.
