Wright and Ketchum take early House Debates lead

Wright and Ketchum House have taken an early lead in Trinity College School’s House Debates program, following the first round of debate on Tuesday, September 26th. Wright and Ketchum each posted a record of two wins and one tie during the round, which featured only Senior debates.

Our Junior debaters had the chance to observe as the Seniors took part in a researched parliamentary debate on the resolution that “TCS should end the practice of giving formal awards.”

The top individual debater was Aman Bhargava of Hodgetts House, with Bella Savard from Burns House in the runner-up spot. Tying for third place were Lidan Zheng of Ketchum and Bickle’s Miguel Weerasinghe, followed by Ketchum’s Ashley Xu in fourth spot.

Aman partnered with Van Veecock to give Hodgetts top team honours, with the Ketchum pairing of Ashley and Lidan in second place. Rounding out the leaderboard were Bella and her teammate, Caitlin Lohan, representing Burns House.

The second round of House Debates will take place on Friday, October 20th, and will include both Junior and Senior debates.
