In January multiple FDT students competed at the Commonwealth High School Debate Tournament online. We are happy to announce that FDT students took almost all the top awards!
Congratulations to Vanessa Chen and Matthew Yu for finishing as the Champion Team in the Novice Division as well as to Matthew for finishing as the Champion Novice Speaker and to Vanessa for placing 2nd. Vanessa and Matthew also placed as semi-finalists in the Junior Division, an especially impressive feat given both of them are in Grade 7!

In the speaker rankings congratulations to Rohan Singh for placing as Champion Speaker, Matthew Yu for placing 2nd, Barry Gu for placing 4th, Vanessa Zhang for placing 5th, Summi Kawakami for placing 8th, and Sissi Hu for placing 9th.
