At the Polish finals of the European Youth Debating Competition held on 21 May in Krakow, we are proud to announce that Julia Kubiak from IB1 has been one of the winners.

Julia will now be one of the Polish representatives at the European finals of the competition which will take place in Berlin in October.

Another IB1 student, Siddarth Gadepalli was one of the runners-up in the Polish finals of the competition.

The event is patronized by the European Young leaders’ Organization as well as the EPCA and Plastics Europe – two international foundations. The best schools in Poland came to Krakow to attend the event  and were represented by over 70 students and our Meridian team comprised Canan  Ersoy, Maciek Gabrysiak, Siddharth Gadepalli, Karolina Galazka, Dulguun Ganbaater, Julia Kubiak, Sara Krymski and Rose Rezaul.

The team were accompanied by Monika Chwesiuk and Charles Wielgus Barry, two members of our teaching staff.

All our team agreed that not only was attending the debating competition valuable for their future experience  but  also gave them a chance for integration with students from other schools.

Congratulations to Julia and to all the team!
