Graduates of SMU Tarakanita 2 high school Patty Regina and Willem Chua today championed the inaugural Binus Pro-Ams tournament under the team name ‘Happy Swingers’. It was the first ever British Parliamentary debate tournament in Indonesia that requires each participating two-member team to have one debater with a record of breaking into the out-rounds of at least one major national or international competition and another with none. Patty is a currently an Universitas Indonesia debater while Willem is a fresh high school graduate. Last year, the two along with another Tarakanita alumnus won a debate tournament in Surabaya for those with less than 4 semesters in college.
Melisa Irene from Binus International topped the speaker tab while UI freshman debater Jessica Andriani Liong grabbed the best amateur speaker award. The Binus Pro-Ams is a prelude to the 2014 Asian English Olympics that will take place at the same venue, the Anggrek campus of Binus University in West Jakarta, this week with a number of non-Indonesian teams. The champions of last year’s AEO, Vicario Reinaldo and Fauzan Reza Maulana from Institut Teknologi Bandung, went on to snatch the EFL title at the 2014 World Universities Debating Championship.
