Lasallians Return to the World Scholar’s Cup

by Reinier Navarro

The World Scholar’s Cup (WSC) returns for another Manila Round!

Students from both Junior and Senior High attended the competition last February 5-6 in Miriam College, Quezon City as they engage and become scholars for either the Junior Division (10-14 years) or the Senior Division (15 years and above).

With this year’s WSC theme entitled “an Imperfect World,” scholars enjoined in activities, such as Collaborative Writing and Debate,  together with other schools from the Philippines. Teams from our school are composed of members from Club Rhetorique, the Student Affairs Central Body (SACB), and the Lazette.
