This past Saturday, Sacred Heart School of Halifax hosted the Nova Scotia Junior High Provincial Debating Tournament that saw 16 teams from six different schools participate.
Sacred Heart had a fantastic presence, with seven teams vying for the title.
In individual standings, Hannah Sarty placed 10th, Xander Biddulph 9th, Aidan Eisan 8th, Holly Jamieson 7th, Elspeth Simms 5th, Max Mitchell 3rd, and Cydney Carruthers 2nd. In team standings, Aidan Eisan and George Chedrawy placed 7th, Hannah Sarty and Elisabeth Cormier 6th, Elspeth Simms and Laura Wright 4th, and Max Mitchell and Xander Biddulph 3rd.
And about that title - Cydney Carruthers and Holly Jamieson made it to the finals, but came up just short as they took home a 2nd place finish.
Congratulations to all of our Sacred Heart debaters on a great tournament! A big thank you to all those who volunteered to judge, moderate, and feed the debaters - we couldn’t host debate tournaments without our amazing volunteers.
