Our team from Bishop Bavin School (South Africa) won in the elimination rounds of the World Scholar's Cup and now have to fly and debate in the global stage round which will be held in Barcelona, Spain.
The World Scholar’s Cup may look like a competition, but isn’t one at all. It’s a celebration of learning. (Just ask the “ninjas” who raided the Taiwan Round in 2012 to demand more guides to study.) It brings together many subjects, because before we can begin to specialize, we need to see the big picture. It challenges teams to work together, because there’s nothing harder or more inspiring than knowing that someone else depends on you. And it deals with serious global issues without taking itself too seriously, because I’m convinced that before we can fall in love with learning, we have to find the fun in learning.
