News from the National Debating Championships

The LCC debate team travelled to Winnipeg in November for the British Parliamentary Style National Debating Championships. LCC was represented by four teams. Miriam '24 and Kyra '24, as well as the team of Naomi '25 and Anja '25 participated in the senior division. In the junior division, we had Ria '26 and Finn '26, as well as the team of '25 and Beatrice '25. 

This national event was well attended with all of the top teams from across Canada in attendance. In the junior division, Beatrice and Janice advanced to the quarter-finals. In the senior division, the team of Miriam and Kyra put on an amazing performance, advancing all the way to the finals where they finished second in Canada. As a result, they have qualified to represent Canada at the Oxford Schools Competition in the United Kingdom next March!

Congratulations to all debaters for their performance, and special thanks to our coaches Ella Waxman '19 and Andrew Vandenbussche '19 (Pre-U '20) for their support.
