韩江中学在曼谷世界学者杯大获全胜 Victory In Bangkok: World Scholar’s Cup
为了增加学生的知识及培养应变能力，本校于9月1日至9月7日派学生代表到泰国曼谷参加比赛。这项比赛是曼谷世界学者杯国际赛WSC(World Scholar’s Cup) Bangkok。
在这5到6个月的时间里，他们共有6种科目需要进行修读，其中包含科学、社会研究、特区、历史、文学和媒体、艺术、音乐及其他的校外课程。他们需要对这六种科目有充分的研究及了解，才能够在比赛当中表现优异。于9月3日，他们参与Scholar’s Challenge, Collaborative Writing, Team Debate。这项活动是让学生们做出正确的选择，并成功应用对这六个科目的知识，就可获得奖牌。于9月4日，本校的学生参与了Scholar’s Bowl。
Collaborative Writing这项活动是从六个主题领域中获得六个提示，去探索有创意及有说服力的论点。Team Debate称为团队辩论。辩论的目的是为了运用自己学到的一切来提出具有说服力及有逻辑性的理由。Scholar’s Bowl这项活动可以让团队里的队员共同努力去解决分析问题和多媒体挑战。Scholars’s Challenge需在1小时内回答120个问题。
高中组的杨顺明、谢宇淇和潘威升赢得了全场第四名、Team Challenge冠军以及Team Writing第十名。同样，高中组的黄衍锦、李悦恩、叶乔妍同学在全场比赛中得了第八名、Team Debate季军和Team Bowl第七名。李悦恩本人也在Individual Debate的项目获得了季军。
另外，初中组的黄若熙赢了Individual Challenge季军，而她与队友则得了Team Challenge第七名。初中组的黄思恒、吴诗琦和钟宁敏也赢了Team Challenge第十名与Team Writing第九名的奖项。
高中组第四名的团队队员包括来自JSE11的杨顺明、SE11的谢宇淇和C13的潘威升。经过两年的磨练与幸苦的准备, 三位同学表示对自己荣获的成就非常满意，并且希望能够在下一场 Tournament of Champions再次脱颖而出、艰难玉成。他们认为World Scholar’s Cup这个比赛是一个了不起的经验和一个很好的机会。三位表示非常感激对方——他们的队友，因为如果大家没有团队合作、没有互相配合, 就不会取得如今辉煌的成绩。
