The 2017 World Scholars Cup Tournament of Champions at the Yale University was yet again another remark of success for Shanghai United International School Gubei. Our school sent its largest ever delegation of 14 students that returned with an amazing 59 medals in all.To further our recognition, Cindy Ge from grade 11 was also selected to compete at the senior’s debate showcase. Our juniors, despite bearing the disadvantage of being a 2 member team successfully won all 3 of their debate rounds. (Normally a team is made up of 3 members). The entire team’s warm heart felt appreciation goes out to Ms. Yu, Mr. Hall, Martin Dong and our most esteemed school, without whom this memorable event would have been unlikely. I sincerely hope that the spreading of these 8 strenuous days experience, parallel joy and spectacular achievements, will inspire others to follow the lead, helping build their own persona.

From my personal perspective, this is the third year for me to participate in the WSC, but the first time qualifying for the TOC. Despite the theme of this year, “An Unlikely World”, the efforts put into the preparation by our diligent scholars through the last few months finally made winning possible. We spent only eight days in New Haven, but the experience in TOC was indeed “bigger, better, more magical” as the organizer of WSC has promised before. I made a lot of new friends coming from all over the world in the debate tournament, shared my happiness with them in the social activities, and, more importantly, reflected upon my personal growth and relationship by loving WSC.
The 2017 season of WSC has come to the end. We look forward to our achievement of next season.
