From Friday 3rd September to Sunday 5th September, four students from MYP and DP participated in the Birla School All India Debate Competition hosted by Birla Public School, Pilani. Students had been practicing and preparing two weeks prior to the debate and attended workshops after school with Ms. Nivedita Rawat and Ms. Suravi Podder. There was intense competition, with twenty reputed schools participating from across the country. The students were given the motions of debate just hours before the competition and prepared their arguments from morning till midnight. They showed incredible determination over the course of the competition. The students, with their timely rebuttals and sheer confidence, have paved the way and set the bar high for PWS to actively participate and host future competitions.
