Debating in Castlegar

We had 6 middle school kids debate in Castlegar last weekend.  They did really well!  The best part was seeing them connect with kids from schools in SD20 once the debating part of the day was done.  Even though competition is quite fierce, they completely understand and appreciate that it is all in good fun.  Mark your calendars as we will host a Regional debate tournament at LVR on Jan 14thRead more →
