JHS joins 21st Balboa Cup
Last October 17 and November 14-15, the Children’s Museum and Library Inc., better known as the CMLI, organized the 21st Balboa Debate Cup – the only Asian Parliamentary Format Tournament for the high school debate community. The Balboa Cup has been held every year in honour of the founder of CMLI, Fernanda S. Balboa. The tournament was held in De La Salle Zobel Santiago School, Ayala Alabang. Delta Chi, St. Scholastica’s College Junior High School Debate Team, sent two contingents comprised of three members each to compete with several other participating high schools from Manila.
Despite the second and third days being moved to later dates due to weather complications, in the end, Team SSC B managed to break into the octo-finals.
