36th HKSBP 2009

INTEK just participated in the English Debate and Bahas Bahasa Melayu Hari Kecemerlangan Sekolah Berasrama Penuh (HKSBP) held in the scorching hot SSP of Cyberjaya. We managed to win two motions but lost to Sekolah Sultan Alam Shah who represented Group I into Round 2. It was a great and once in a lifetime experience as next year onwards, HKSBP will be done in zones instead of nationals.

Whatmore, this year onwards HKSBP has adopted the UIAM style of debating where the motion and position will only be given an hour before the debate commences. So, INTEK will have to work extra hard to qualify and we're gonna start now. No point waiting until the 11th hour to create wonders if we can do it now. INTEK will be aiming to create a strong generation of future debaters with the help of our current debaters. Insya Allah, we can give a tough fight and establish ourselves as the better ones.

On a slightly different note, out of all the schools I've watched debating, my personal preference would be Sekolah Menengah Sains Seremban (SASER) boys. I watched them as the government debating against Sekolah Menengah Sains Muar (SAMURA) and they nailed the motion to their side quite amazingly (considering the motion was "Celebrities Make Good Politicians"). The second and third speaker (Muhammad Afiq and Megat Ridzwan, respectively) were especially good. For me, an efficient and good debater can be differentiated from the mediocre by the way they address the POIs. Unfortunately, they lost against SSP in the semi-finals. Daaaaarrrrnnnn....

So, until HKSBP Zon Timur 2010... Au revoir...

I helped the students in my school with the English debate too...
Too bad their proficiency level did not allow them to achieve in the district-level but it was still good exposure for them.

Now, I'm pumped up to participate in the teacher's English debate.
Bring it on!
