Inter House Cambridge Debate Competition Grades IX to XII (11th May 2018)




 

‘WAR OF WORDS’ ON ‘IS SCIENCE A THREAT TO HUMANITY’

 

“It is not he who gains the exact point in dispute or who scores most in controversy but he who has shown the better temper.”

 

The eleventh of May marked one of the most significant activities at the House level, The Inter House Cambridge Debate Competition for students from grade IX-XII on the topic ‘Is Science A Threat To Humanity’. The participants from Wordsworth and Shakespeare house vehemently argued for the motion while participants from Dickens and Keats house were against the motion. The participants were all ready to convince the audience and the judges by using language as a weapon. They used various skills like overstatement, irony etc. Although all the four teams exhibited great oratorical skills but finally Keats House was declared winner followed by Wordsworth House. The rebuttal session made the debate more interesting and entertaining. The judges for the day were Ms Rishampreet and Ms Mona Sandhir. They were also deeply engrossed in the session .When the minutest details of the speaker’s performance came into play, Lakshay Kalra of Keats House swon the best speaker. The Vice Chairperson Ms. Neerza Mayor suggested the students to express themselves in a way so as to reach the pinnacle and motivated them by saying that their efforts and spirit can work like a magic in enhancing their performance ahead. Such kind of appreciation not only boosts the qualities of students but also help them to gather courage for taking up big challenges in life.
