One of our newer Student Clubs is the Debate Club. Despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, members of the Debate Club have worked hard throughout the year by attending several qualifying tournaments in The American Debate League from November of 2020 through April.
The members’ dedication paid dividends, as three of the club’s teams attended the New York State Forensic League State Championship that took place the weekend of 23 April. It was a great accomplishment to be part of this State tournament, and this was the first year that the school had three attending.
Congratulations to the following students who competed at the State tournament:
- Madhi Bhalloo
- Benjamin Casella
- Riya Mittle
- Aliza Virji
- Tobey Hirsch
- Bridget Ye
Thanks as well to the club’s dedicated faculty advisor, Ms. Pilar Principe-Franco!
