HAEF Students Distinguish Themselves at World Schools Debating Championship 2018

Recent College graduates, Silia Gazepi (PC-IB) and Giorgos Filippopoulos (PC-IB) were constituents of the 5-member team that represented Greece at the World Schools Debating Championship, held in Croatia from July 17 – 27, 2018.


The Greek team placed 17th among the 65 nations that participated, reaching the semi-finals. The team debated against nations from around the globe, winning significant rounds against strong teams from countries with a long-standing tradition in debate.  What’s more, our two students excelled on a personal level as they ranked among the top 60 speakers of the event.


College Debate and Forensics coaches, Ms. Kallina Mpasli and Mr. Theodoros Ntounias, prepared and accompanied the team on this mission.
