Last weekend 10 Sacred Heart debaters showed the power of their voices during the National British Parliamentary Debate Championships, which took place in Saskatoon this year.
Our debaters had a great time, propped each other up, and represented our School and our Province proudly. The team of Anisha Rajeselmav and Amelia Walworth were our top finishers in 9th place in the Senior category. Amelia was the top senior speaker from Nova Scotia, in 17th place. Cydney Carruthers was recognized as the top Junior High speaker from Nova Scotia. Xander Biddulph and Brandon Powell were the top Nova Scotia Junior team. Congratulations to each of our ten student debaters for stepping up on the national stage and here’s to a strong 2020.
Thanks to our debaters for their commitment, to their parents for their support, and a special thank you to Ms. Kathryn Bjornson for her dedication to the students and the debating program.
