Last March 6-7, 11 members of the Zobel Parliament attended La Salle Debate Society’s, De La Salle University’s premiere varsity debating team, Lasallian Interschool Training.

Unlike most debates, Zobel debaters were not alongside each other but against each other. Teaming up with schools throughout the Philippines such as MGC, DLSU-SHS, Regina Maria Montessori, St. Scholastic Manila, and many more.

Zobel Debaters maintained their spark, finishing their runs as follow:

  1. Danielle Victoria S. Garcia (DLSZ 2021): 2nd Ranking Team with 3 wins 
  2. Mary Janiyah Kate Z. Aguto (DLSZ 2025): 6th Ranking Team with 2 wins

This event was the opportunity for debaters to not only meet new debaters but to step out of debating as well. Riva G. Fong (DLSZ 2021) adjudicated two (2) rounds of this event.
