Victory of Senior English Debate Team ‹ BACK
On the 23rd of November, the Methodist College Senior Debate team won the first round of the NESTA debating competition against Ying Wa Girls’ School. Sabrina Cheung (5B), Tina Lam (5W) and Natalie Lau (5B) convinced the judge that space is the final frontier, a famous quotation from the famous movie Star Trek. Debating this somewhat philosophical topic was no easy task, but the judge was particularly impressed with the way the Methodist College team defined the motion, describing our effort as “tricky and naughty”.

The NESTA debating competition is organized by the Native English Speaking Teachers’ Association and the South China Morning Post with more than 140 secondary schools participating. It aims to provide opportunities for students to develop interest and skills in English debating.

Congratulations to the senior debaters!
