Massey Debate Team


Students from Vincent Massey Secondary School’s Debate Team once again showed themselves to be fierce contenders at the Odette Debate Competition, held on Friday Nov.15th, 2013.

                Massey students proved to be a considerable force among the competition, comprising twenty out of the eighty teams present.  They also proved themselves to be worthy contenders, with Anshika Jain and Jelena Djukic placing 4th, Chris Gregorian and Raymond Wong 3rd, and the team of Avneet Dhami and Lilly Gates finishing 2nd overall!

                On top of strong team finishes, both individual awards also went to Massey students, with Chris Gregorian winning for Best Speaker, and Anshika Jain receiving Best Rebutter.

Congratulations once again to the Vincent Massey Debate Team, not only for making Massey proud, but also for performing to the best of their ability while under pressure!  Thank you also to Team Coaches Mr. McKenzie and Mr. Ing--- through the team’s success, your expertise and dedication is evident!

The skill of negotiation and debate is one which always proves useful when transferred into everyday situations.  The ability gained through the experiences on the Massey Debate team will surely prove to be a useful asset to our students while continuing on later in life.
