The experience: 84 CGS students join seven schools last weekend to debate, write and explore new knowledge in the World Scholar’s Cup Athens Round.
The challenge: they work in small teams and consider many questions through this year’s theme, “An Unlikely World”… they discuss whether Greece should land a woman on the moon or if extinct animals should be brought back to life and all this implies.
The highlights: CGS students are the top scorers in 4 of 6 Challenge Subjects (Social Science, History, Science and Literature). CGS students in the Junior category rank in the top 10 for the Collaborative Writing, and one, Vasilis Grimanis, places first. CGS is represented by one team in the Senior category and places 4th in the Collaborative Writing overall and qualifies to move on to the Global Round! Another CGS student, Ourani Moroni, makes it to the Final Debate Round to debate the motion, “Greece is running out of luck.” – and wins. Overall, 5 Junior Teams rank among the top 20 along with 13 more to qualify for the World Scholars Cup Global Round in Hanoi, Cape Town or Athens this summer…
The conclusion: CGS students are young people we can believe in and we can proud of.
Well done, Scholars! Pwwwwaaaaaa!!
