In three high-class debates, our Senior Team managed to defend their title and win Senior League 2021.
Last Saturday (12th June), Ari, Lars, Pranav and Smirthi, managed to win their quarter-, semi- and Grand Final debates of this year’s Senior League. It started with a 2:1 win in the quarter-final against OHG Ludwigsburg when Pranav, Lars and Ari debated in proposition on the motion ‚This house would ban the use and trade of cryptocurrencies‘. The semi-final saw a passionate performance from our team (Lars, Smirthi, Ari) when they beat neighbouring Dillmann-Gymnasium 5:0 as opposition on the motion ‚This house believes that the Biden Administration should continue to pursue antagonistic and confrontational trade strategies against China‘.
Eventually, the Grand Final against Max-Born-Gymnasium Backnang was an impromptu debate on the Motion ‚This house believes that humanity must overcome the nation state‘. With clever arguments and fine strategy, our debaters managed to convince the panel of judges and won on Opposition with 5:2 ballots. Congratulations to our successful debaters!
After this season, we are saying goodbye to two very talented debaters, Ari and Lars, who are leaving our school after collecting no less than 4 titles with the school team in 5 years of debating.
