A Debatable Challenge
The Bahrain Regional Round of the World Scholar’s Cup Competition took place on Friday and Saturday 30-31 January at St Christopher’s School. Students from 5 schools across Bahrain competed in teams of three in two age groups. The schools that took part were AMA International School, the Indian School Bahrain, British School Bahrain, Riffa Views International School and St Christopher’s School. This year the theme was ‘The World Unbound’ with students learning and debating about how new technology, history, art, music and literature have all had an influence on the development of mankind. A team of Adam Wilson, Stuti Roy and Saarah Malik from St Christopher’s School were the overall winners in the Senior Division. The team of Raza Akbari, Llewellyn Forward and Dhruv Kotecha, also from St Christopher’s School, were the overall winners in the Junior Division. The World Scholar’s Cup is a fun, challenging and academic competition that runs regional competitions in over 30 countries. The best performing students are invited to compete at the Global competition in Kuala Lumpur in June and potentially then at the ‘Tournament of Champions’ at Yale University in the United States in November.
