Pooikeians are on SCMP today (please refer to the following links),because our English debate teams made history yesterday (27th June, 2013).
The name of our school will definitely be written in the history of Hong Kong schools’ debating as we were the only school that both Junior and Senior teams have made the final of the 14th NESTA/ SCMP Hong Kong Schools’ English Debating Championship!
The competition was held at Amenities Building, City University of Hong Kong.
The motion of debate was Young people in Hong Kong are growing up in a society which encourages negative attitudes towards people from the mainland.
