It is the first year of "Jugend debattiert" at our school and we already had six young debaters taking part in an international competition in Shanghai. The regional competition of German schools in Asia took place from 1 - 4. June. It was a great opportunity for our school’s winners to compete with like-minded people or become a juror. In age group I, GESS was represented by Tassia Flath, Ellen Henning and Sarah Seitz, in age group II by Carsten Hesse and Lilith Schuster. With Anna Pracht, we now have a certified juror at our school. Anna Behnke accompanied the group. The enthusiastic and committed students not only learned to debate properly, this year, but also planned and held competitions for grades 8 and 11. So don’t be surprised if your child wins the discussion about receiving more pocket money the next time!
