UCC debaters on world stage

Two Upper Canada College debaters turned in excellent performances at international tournaments over the summer.

aliIB1 student Alnur Kassim-Lakha competed in two tournaments in the Czech Republic. He made it to the final and placed second along with his partner in the first tournament, where they competed against a team of older students from the University of Stockholm. Kassim-Lakha faced stiff competition in the next tournament but made it to the quarter-finals and placed 12th individually.

IB2 student Elliot Kaufman was selected to represent Team Canada at the Pan-American Schools Debate Tournament in Hamilton, Bermuda in July. He finished fourth individually, while his Canada East team lost in the final. Kaufman’s strong performance earned him an invitation to be part of the five-member Canadian team at the World Schools Debating Championship in Thailand next August.

UCC art chair David Holt has painting exhibition

Class Pictures by David Holt

David Holt’s Class Pictures.

UCC art chair David Holt will have his fourth exhibition of paintings at Toronto’s loop Gallery from Sept. 14 to Oct. 6.

The show, titled Illustrated History, is inspired by museum displays and historical archives, catalogues and encyclopedias that invite multiple side-by-side visual comparisons within groups of artworks, artifacts, archeological fragments, nature specimens and other examples of natural and human history. The paintings offer a fresh look at world history through Holt’s playful use of composition and colour.

An opening reception will be held on Sept. 15 from 1 to 4 p.m.

You can learn more about Holt’s work during a question and answer session together with Lanny Shereck that will be moderated by UCC teacher and artist Vesna Krstich at loop on Oct. 5 at 7 p.m. prior to Toronto’s Nuit Blanche festivities.
