HKBU team wins first runner-up title in Inter-collegiate Debate Competition

浸大辯論隊勇奪大專賽亞軍

HKBU debate team gained the first runner-up title in the Hong Kong Inter-collegiate Debate Competition 2017 co-organised by RTHK and the Hong Kong Federation of Students. Addison Chu (Broadcast Journalism, Year 2) won the Best Debater Award for his outstanding performance.
 
The motion in the final round of the contest was: “The next government term should re-launch political reform”, with HKBU speaking in favour and HKU against. Ceci Wu, President of the team and Broadcast Journalism Year 2 student, said team members had been active in taking part in various contests over the past year and had invited senior students to help them in their training. This build-up improved their skills significantly. Coming from different schools and departments, and with different political standpoints, team members thoroughly studied the motion and analysed it from different angles in order to enhance their debating skills. 
 
She expressed the team’s gratitude to the Office of Student Affairs and the HKBU Students’ Union for their kind support in enabling team members to devote themselves fully to preparing for the competition and thereby attaining the excellent results.  

浸大辯論隊於香港電台與香港專上學生聯會合辦的「大專辯論賽2017」勇奪亞軍,隊員朱偉東(廣播新聞二年級)更摘下最佳辯論員獎項。
 
今年辯論賽的辯題為「來屆政府應重啟政改」,由正方浸大與反方香港大學對壘。浸大辯論學會主席、廣播新聞二年級學生胡瀞詩表示,今年浸大代表隊成員過去一年積極參加各項辯論比賽,並邀請高年級學生協助訓練,大大改善他們的比賽技巧,有助取得佳績。另外,團隊來自不同學院、學系,又抱持不同政治立場,可利用多度思考及分釋辯題,提升了他們的辯論水平。
 
她感謝學生事務處及學生會的協助,讓成員可以全心全意準備比賽,並取得傑出成績。
