The 2018 National Highschool Debate League of China’s Harbin Regionals have completed on November 25th. Competing with students who traveled from Beijing, Tianjin, and Dalian, students debated on the topic, “Resolved: In the United States criminal justice system, only people convicted of violent crimes should be sentenced to prison.”
The event marked the third successful event held at our school and showed the continued partnership between NHSDLC and HWS. Hosting the debate allowed our students to easily approach this national competition and take a step in becoming a lifelong learner outside of the classroom as well. Regardless of the results, all participants was able to push themselves to their limits and gain valuable experience.
The 2018 Debate was the third tournament where our students participated in the finals round and the second tournament that our students have won. The strong showing clearly reflecting the quality of students, education and guidance HWS possess.
Congratulations to the 10 high school division teams and the 2 middle school division teams from HWS that qualified for the finals that will be held in Beijing next August!
