On Friday, October 11th, 7 GSIS students traveled to SIS to compete in the first Forensics Speech and Debate Tournament of the year. GSIS hosted the Forensics workshop for all KAIAC schools, with 115 participants from 7 schools earlier tin the year. Currently, the GSIS Forensics team has 17 students on it's squad. At the first tournament, two students from GSIS placed in the competition!
Robby Hwang '15 took second place in the Prose speech category. Grace Shin '15 took third place in the Original Oratory speech category. Since there were nearly 20 students competing in each of those categories, the placements are significant. This was the first time both students competed in a speech tournament, which makes the wins even more impressive.
Congratulations to both Robby and Grace for representing GSIS proudly!
The next tournament will be in November, hosted by Yongsan International School.
