Energy Debates at KIS and Kootenay Orchards

Posted on

The students at both Kimberley Independent school and Kootenay Orchards school in Cranbrook, had an opportunity to debate the pros and cons of Solar, Nuclear, Wind, Fossil Fuels and Hydro energy this week. The students worked hard on researching their energy resource, as well as coming up with some great rebuttals for the other teams. The scores were so close and at KIS, the seniors representing Hydro were victorious in their debating skills and the Grade 4-5’s Solar debating team came out strong too. At Kootenay Orchards the Hydro team had the strongest debate. Overall, all the teams from both schools learned more about energy resources and some even wanted to start a debating club! Great job students!
