K-Day Debating

George Takei said that “we should indeed keep calm in the face of difference and live our lives in a state of inclusion and wonder at the diversity of humanity”. In this year’s K Day debating events, we raised awareness of pride month in our motions. It was truly spectacular to see the three school’s embrace this topic and argue with rigor and passion on the podiums.

In the Junior division, we debated the motion:

THS queerbaiting in film and media.

St Andrew’s College 1 vs Kingswood College 1

DSG 1 vs DSG 3

Kingswood College 2 vs DSG 2

All these debates were taken by the opposition sides, Kingswood College 1 winning against St Andrews College, DSG 3 won against DSG 1 and DSG 2 took the debate against Kingswood College 2.

In the Senior division, we debated the motion:

THR the queer movement’s primary form of collectivisation transitioning from riots/protests into pride celebrations/parade.

St Andrew’s College 1 vs Kingswood College 1

DSG 1 vs St Andrew’s College 2

Kingswood College 2 vs DSG 2

 Kingswood College 1 won against St Andrews College 1, on the opposition side.

DSG 1 won in proposition against St Andrews College 2

And DSG 2 won against Kingswood College 2.
