Lahore Grammar School wins top position

Islamabad, Oct 31: The 10th Mahbub-ul-Haq Memorial Inter-School Debate Competition organised by the Mahbub-ul-Haq Human Development Centre and Rajiv Gandhi Foundation in collaboration with National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences was held at FAST Auditorium here on Tuesday.

The topic selected for the debate was 'Global Warming, Melting of Glaciers and Rising Sea Levels Spell Doom for the South Asian Region: A Myth or Reality,' which was participated by students from various schools and colleges of Rawalpindi, Islamabad and Lahore.

Student participants who spoke in favour of the topic said it is an alarming situation for the South Asian countries that are endangered by the rising sea levels because of global warming, adding that these countries should take drastic measures in order to avert this situation which is posing a threat to their future generations.

Students speaking against the motion said glaciers go through natural changes and there is nothing alarming about this situation. "This is all a speculation and myth and has nothing to do with reality. We react to extremism at once and leave common sense behind ignoring the search for truth," said one of the students speaking against the motion.

Sahibzada Yaqoob Khan, the chief guest on the occasion, said he was deeply touched by the substance used in favour and against the topic. "The manner in which their opinions were executed was superb. The students through their thoughts have left a great impact on the minds and instigated us to review the situation with a different perspective," he said.

Judges for the competition included Dr. Essa Daudpota, Dr. A H Nayyar, Arif Alahuddin (UNDP) and Arshad Mahmud (NUML).

The participating schools in the Inter-School Debate Competition were Aitchison College; Alta Vista College; Beaconhouse School, Islamabad; Chand Bagh School; Fountainhead School; GC University; Headstart School (Junior & Senior Branch); Islamabad Convent School; Khaldunia High School; Lahore College of Arts & Sciences (Lacas); Lahore Grammar School; Roots College International, Islamabad; Roots College International, Rawalpindi; St Mary's Academy; The City School and The Lahore Lyceum.

The prize for best speaker in favour of the motion was given to Zainab Samantash of Islamabad Convent School, while Nayab Gohar of Lahore Grammar School received the prize for best speaker against the motion. The runner-up prize was presented to Islamabad Convent School, while winner of the competition was Lahore Grammar School. The News
