1º Bachillerato participated in the III Torneo de debate escolar San Pablo

  • 25/02/2019

Last weekend, 9 students from 1º Bachillerato participated in the III Torneo de debate escolar San Pablo, organised by CEU. Despite a few setbacks due to the flu, which affected us all, leading to someone having to drop out in the final lineup, it was a unique experience and we managed to finish runners up. In reality Debate Tournaments, in general, are always unique experiences. Regardless of the topic or the tournament itself, they always manage to draw a smile on our faces. In addition, they give us the opportunity to meet students from different universities, which can help guide our future university life.
The world of debating is becoming more important and, at Retamar it is no exception. The opportunity to participate in all these tournaments is something we are very lucky to have. For that, we are very grateful. Regarding the motion in question, if the US should stop engaging in international conflicts, this allowed us to engage in critical thinking that required us to judge situations that are currently affecting the international order, like if the UN is utopian or completely ineffective or, if we should stop fearing countries like Russia or China and start to fear Uncle Sam.
In short, if debating itself is already something positive, in this case, it was even more so since the subject of debate had a lot of meat to it and demanded full concentration. It was something unforgettable and a great way to start the month of February (in spite of the flu). Diego Zuloaga.
