 This weekend, Mulgrave School hosted the Vancouver Regional Round of the World Scholar's Cup, a global competition in which thousands of the world's top high school and middle school students compete. The World Scholar's Cup is a challenging and rigorous competition consisting of 4 events in total: Team Debate, Team Writing, Team Bowl, and Team Challenge. The students’ knowledge is tested in 6 pre-chosen subject areas from science to social studies. With that level of challenge, the accomplishments of our students are even more impressive!
