World Scholar’s Cup Global Round 2019
After fantastic success at the Regional Round of the World Scholars Cup here in Bangkok, our PHS WSC team of 9 students qualified for and attended the Global Round in Beijing China. This year our team embarked on an exciting trip to Beijing, China. The event was held at the China National Convention Center at the very center of one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities from June 21 to June 26.
Our students experienced scavenger hunts, keynote speeches, panel discussions, the WSC signature cultural fair, the Scholar’s Ball, and all the competitive and community-building events that drew them to the World Scholar’s Cup in the first place, from the Debate Showcase to the Scholar’s Bowl.
All of our students walked away with new friends, new discoveries, and very large alpacas. Our students did extremely well this year, which once again qualifies them to attend the year-end Tournament of Champions at Yale University, USA. Our top team placed 28th in the world out of over 700 teams from 39 countries. Individually the students brought home 45 Gold and Silver medals.
