COBIS Debate Best Speakers

Last weekend, twelve of our wonderful Year 12 and 13 students took part in The COBIS Virtual Debate, competing against other British international schools from across the globe. Our BST students did us proud and impressed the judges with their intelligence, eloquence and skilful use of logic. Abdalaziz Saleh Al Hadad, Moritz Kramer and Advait Anand Motgi all won best speaker in their debates. Here are the judges comments:

I had the pleasure of judging Abdalaziz during debate four of the competition. Abdalaziz held great eye contact throughout the debate and made an excellent point about the critical thinking skills of children being underdeveloped, leading to surface level solutions. He used real life examples in the form of a powerful rhetorical question, referencing the issue of children in Israel and Palestine, as well as touching on Greta Thunberg. He also emphasised his points beautifully with masterful repetition and a clear speaking voice with great use of tone and volume! I really enjoyed listening to him and he certainly stood out as the Star Speaker of the debate. COBIS Judge

I had the pleasure of judging Advait during the third debate of the competition. Advait consistently maintained a smile on his face throughout debate! He brought amazing energy to the room and all in all was an amazing debater - it was a joy to watch him. COBIS Judge
I had the pleasure of judging Moritz during the fourth debate of the competition. He showed amazing signs of teamwork throughout the debate and during the preparation time. He successfully referenced his teammates previous point during his rebuttal to the previous speaker, demonstrating an advanced understanding of the importance of a consistent through line across a team. Mortiz repeatedly proved that his points were not isolated arguments, but in fact part of a much larger collective effort. For this he is well deserving of the Star Speaker award. He also demonstrated some superb stylistic techniques that he maintained throughout the debate - all round an excellent speaker! COBIS Judge
