The World Scholar’s Cup

Last weekend, 23 and 24 March, the students who attend the Debate ECA participated in a debate competition called The World Scholar’s Cup. On Saturday, the pupils took the train to Trebnje Elementary School where they first attended the opening ceremony. Subsequently, they had a long and challenging day as they participated in three different events: writing compositions, a test and debating. They showed that they were excellent communicators, as well as being very knowledgeable and principled while working as a team and competing against other scholars. Sunday’s events were held in Festivalna dvorana in Ljubljana. The day was less demanding, but started with an extensive quiz nevertheless. This was followed by a debate showcase in which the best debaters from the previous day showed their skills. The competitors had fun participating or supporting the contestants in the talent show as well. The competition concluded with the award ceremony in which our pupils proved to be very successful.
