DFG-LFA Debating contest 2017

Debating Contest 2017The DFG-LFA has already had its fifth edition of the debating contest in English! All 2nde classes took part in it on 6th April 2017, assessed by a jury of three: Mrs Scholtes from the Deutsch-Amerikanisches Institut, Dr Ankerstein from the University of Saarland and Mr Grannec from our very own school.

“Homeschooling versus traditional schooling”, “mandatory vote for each citizen” or “people who choose not to have children are selfish”… those were the controversial issues that opposed the debaters. It was hard to decide which teams were the best and the distribution of points showed how close it was. However, the 2nde ES and the 2nde S2 are the ones to make it through to the final round in May.

Well done to all the participants whose language level and debating skills were particularly high. And thanks to the lively audience who supported the teams throughout the three debates, and brought in good mood and fine spirit.
