Congratulations to our Senior Debater, Rebecca Harrigan, who has been selected as a member of the NI World Schools Debating Team who will compete against 50 other countries in Croatia in July.
The World Schools Debating Championship (WSDC) is a global competition for national high school debate teams. Teams from all over the world gather in a battle of minds, discussing 13 different topics set by an international panel of debate experts.
With over 50 different countries regularly participating in the tournament, WSDC is a truly global event.
Promoting excellence, creativity and, crucially, critical thinking, WSDC is not only a competition but a forum for the best and the brightest of students. The tournament lasts for 10 days during which highly competitive debate rounds interchange with social activities and is a unique experience for all competitors.
This will be the only NI Team in 20 years to participate in the Championship and Rebecca is the only team member from the North West.
We wish her every success!
