10th SULONG Convention
Saturday, Mar 21, 2009, 5:00 PMToday ends the 10th SULONG Convention in our school. One of the Competitions for Excellence (CFEs) is a debate regarding the school rule wherein bringing of gadgets to school is not allowed.
I was asked by my batchmate Steph to join the said contest because my section, Cana, could not find any other representative. According to the rules, a year level needs three representatives coming from the three different sections in it. The situation presented to me by Steph meant that the juniors will lose by default.
I wouldn't have been able to join because I was a facilitator of the convention. Earlier rules state that organizers are not allowed to join in any of the competitions. However, due to lack of debaters, the rule was disregarded. Hence, I was allowed to join.
Due to the short notice, I wasn't able to prepare my speech for the debate! So, I ended up writing it onstage while my turn wasn't up yet. Thankfully, I finished writing down my whip speech quickly.
The results of the debate will be announced during the formal closing ceremonies tonight.
