Distinctions in Forensics (PFAT) for Pierce students!

A group of Pierce students successfully participated in the 2024 Panhellenic Forensics Association Tournament, organized by the E. Mantoulidis Schools, in Thessaloniki from Thursday 4th to Sunday 7th of April, 2024.

Our students competed in the categories of Debate, Impromptu Speaking and Oral Interpretation of Literature in a very friendly atmosphere, and IB student Cleo Darzenda reached the final.

A few days earlier, on Saturday February 10th, the girls of the Gymnasium excelled in the International Competition for Young Debaters, held at the I.M. Panagiotopoulos School. Pierce was represented by two teams, with Marili Siganidou and Monica Makraki comprising the first one – and Eleni Hatziioannou and Leontios Tzazopoulos comprising the other. After three qualifying rounds, Marili and Monica reached the 4th place in the semi-finals. Also, Monica was named 4th best speaker of the tournament and Marili the 6th best speaker!
