SEK Catalunya’s debating teams can be commended for their achievements at the fourth pre-university National Debate Tournament Final. At the individual level, Mireia Montané, a fourth-grader in secondary school, achieved the Best Individual English Speaker Award.
This prestigious debate league, the most important event of its type in Europe and the only one developed in both Spanish and English languages, organized by CICAE and Camilo Jose Cela University, has run throughout the school year, with its final debates being done in a virtual manner, due to the current circumstances of house confinement. The final event took place on 29th and 30th of May in online format.
With the participation of 150 young people from different schools throughout Spain, and debating the very real topic of `The measures necessary for monitoring and individualized control necessary to confront the pandemic of the COVID-19´, the event has once again demonstrated it´s relevance in fostering discussion and the exchange of ideas and concepts among young students and their commitment to issues of common interest.
SEK-Catalunya presented three teams, two in Spanish and one in English, and the latter, under the name of “Aleja Jacta Est”, managed to progress thorough all the rounds to reach the final, where they achieved individual recognition for one of their members.
