I want to thank everyone for putting in their best effort during the debate, though we didn’t manage to enter the finals for the inter-class competition. I’m still proud of each and everyone of you, because I know everyone did their very best.
Thank you for being able to listen to the propo’s arguments and noting down some of their flaws in their definition. Also, I would like to thank you for accepting the role as a second speaker without questioning me when I re-arranged everyone’s speaker roles. Since you have never been in debate before, hopefully you’ve learnt something from these two rounds. Congratulations on receiving the best speaker award, I’m sure the team’s happy for you! (:
Thank you for spending your precious sleep-time and possibly your bonding time with your bunnies to come up with the preemptive rebuttals as the third speaker. Don’t take it too hard on yourself that you ‘screwed up’ on the floor, but take it as a learning experience. You’ve always said that in your club, it’s never fair because the JG speakers are always the same so I hope that through these two rounds, you have learnt something out of it. I’m still proud of you nonetheless, because you never fail to make the audience laugh ^^
Thank you for always being the most reliable speaker with her speech around. Although you always get really flustered before the competition, you’re a totally different person on the floor, and it’s good to see that you’re so confident of yourself. Thank you for being able to listen to everything that everyone has to say in the limited 2 minutes, and in my opinion, you have been the best reply speaker I’ve worked with. You did well, and I’m sure everyone thinks the same way too (:
Thank you for accepting (though a bit reluctantly) the first speaker role for the first round, and I’m pretty sure you enjoyed yourself while speaking to the audience! But since we made a pact, I had to man up and take on your role afterwards. Also, thank you for being such a good listener as a reserve during the second round, pinpointing out certain things all the 4 speakers on the floor missed out on. I had a wonderful time working together with you, and I hope that we could all come together someday to do this once again.
We lost knowing that we relied on our own efforts, but the opponents received help from their teachers, yeah? Good job everyone! :3
