Sacrificing a well-earned sleep-in, sixteen members of Del’s debate team arrived early Saturday morning at Brebeuf College School. The reason? The Agnes MacPhail Tournament organized by the Pro-Con Debating League.
Wading into matters political and pedagogical, participants debated the following: B.I.R.T. Ontario should provide free post-secondary education for all students. Continuing a successful season, we had some excellent results. Our senior team—Amaya Dujon, Ashley Costa, Maxine Nicolais, and Isabella Spensieri—placed third overall in the team category, while our junior team—Adele Lopes, Elise Cressati, Chloe Robillard, and Sahana Muhundun—placed first overall in the team category. It should also be said that Ashley Costa placed third overall in the individual category for senior debaters. A hearty congratulations to all. Well done!
