Royal College Makes it Two in a Row

The Elizabeth Moir Debating Championship was held on the 10th and 11th of October 2014 at the Elizabeth Moir Senior School. The tournament saw 24 teams participate, with the top four teams after 2 rounds of debate proceeding to the semi-finals.

In the semi-final rounds, Ananda College (B) defeated Ananda College (A) to seal their spot in the final, while Royal College did the same by defeating Gateway College (A).

Ananda College (B) was represented by

Navindu Palliyaguruge
Tharuka Perera
Minul Muhandiramge

while Royal College comprised

Kanchana Ranasinghe
Sidath Samarasinghe
Arjun Ratwatte

In an almost deja-vu Grand Final, Ananda College proposed the motion 'This house believes that nationalism is a virtue', and after a close fought debate, the panel of adjudicators split 2-1 in favour of Royal College, giving them their second title in as many competitions.

Our congratulations to both teams on making it to the Final of successive competitions, to the winners on their success, and to the organizers for bravely taking on the task of hosting such a competition.
